New pilot credit recognizes all-gender restrooms

Green Building Team on March 28, 2021

Recently there has been a shift in building design, most notably within schools, to include all-gender restrooms ensuring that restroom access is provided for every building occupant. CaGBC, with the volunteer Technical Advisory Groups, had advocated for a change to incorporate the experience of Canadian project teams and in recognition of the evolving market, the USGBC has released pilot credit WEpc147 All-Gender Restrooms applicable to all project types.

LEED BD+C v4/v4.1 project teams may earn one point as an INc pilot credit within the Innovation section. (This pilot credit is not an alternative compliance pathway for WEp Indoor Water Use Reduction.)
