- Site selection and development:
UIC aims to avoid using land that will interfere with the 100 year flood plain, the local amenities, or habitats of endangered species. For more specific guidelines please refer to LEED v.3 Sustainable Sites, Credit 1: Site Selection.
- Previously developed areas or graded sites:
Restore or protect a minimum of 50% of the site (excluding the building footprint) or 20% of the total site area (including building footprint), whichever is greater, with native or adapted vegetation. Green roofs may be included in calculations provided they promote biodiversity, provide habitat and are composed of native or adapted plants.
Absorptive materials, if installed or being stored on site, must be protected from moisture.

SELECTIVE STRUCTURE DEMOLITION/BUILDING DEMOLITION
- Aim to recycle and/or salvage at least 75% of nonhazardous construction and demolition debris by weight. At a minimum 50% must be recycled or salvaged. Excavated soil and land-clearing debris do not count. Documentation to this effect must be provided with final project documents, and a copy provided to the Office of Sustainability, 1140 S. Paulina MC 996, Chicago, IL 60612.
Utility shutdowns must be scheduled in advance so as not to interfere
with University operations. The University must be notified at least
two (2) weeks prior to removal of any work connected to utilities so
that arrangements can be made for proper disconnection of such
utilities. The locations of all known gas lines, underground telephone
cables, underground electrical cables and conduit, water lines, chilled
water lines, sanitary and storm sewer lines, and steam lines must be
marked before performing any work.
valve boxes and manholes should be protected so they will not be
crushed, buried with earth or covered with construction material and
structures, foundations and masonry under new structures should be
completely removed unless otherwise approved by the University.
structures, foundations and masonry not under new structures shall be
removed to a depth of at least 5 feet below finished grade.
