The San Diego County Board of Supervisors established design standards for county facilities and property. Among other requirements,  the policy requires that all new county buildings or major building renovations obtain U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Building Certification. Renovations of over 5,000 square feet  are considered major renovations. Buildings over 10,000 square feet require LEED Enhanced Commissioning. Additionally, county projects are required to attain the lowest EUI (Energy Use Intensity) possible within the client's program and project's budget. County projects are also required to exceed the current California Energy Code Title 24 by at least 20%.
