The LEED Materials credits require costs to be figured in one of two ways:
"The Total Materials Cost may by multiplying the total construction cost (hard costs for CSI MasterFormat 1995 divisions 2-10 only) by 0.45. Alternatively, the Total Materials Cost may be a tally of actual materials cost (CSI MasterFormat 1995 divisions 2-10 only) from the project Schedule of Values or similar document... Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components, along with appliances and equipment cannot be included in this credit."
We've been working with MF04 for awhile now, and I've recently been asked what to do with our sitework materials (formerly division 2, now in the 30's). I'm confused becuase part of sitework to me seems to be plumbing (Ductile Iron Water Pipe and Fittings, Valves, Fire Hydrants, etc.).
Has anyone drafted a master list of what MF04 sections should be included in the LEED material cost calculations?
