In California, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) was formed in 1999 to facilitate the design, construction and operation of high performance schools. A majority of CHPS requirements were adopted by LEED for schools.
As an added service to our clients, PC Associates offers construction document LEED review or CHPS equivalent plan reviews as an option in conjunction with our constructability – interdisciplinary coordination (RemedyCheck®) and code reviews. Since LEED and CHPS certification includes but is not limited to registration, fee and provides credit for non-construction document items such as Site Selection and Building Operations, the PC Associates‘ LEED and CHPS schools equivalent plan review will check for credit items which is provided in the plans and specifications. Non-school projects will be reviewed using a LEED equivalent new construction or modernization checklist while school or CHPS equivalent plan review checklist will be used for educational projects.
