GSAS Light Industry

The intent of GSAS Light Industry is to assess and rate the design of new light industrial buildings. The criteria and measurements focus on providing healthy and sustainable facilities for occupants and workers and range from a measurement of energy consumption to the thermal comfort provided to Office and Operational Areas.

Light industrial buildings are facilities that use labor intensive operations primarily to produce consumer goods. The intent is to produce final products for user consumption, not to manufacture or produce equipment and products that are used in other manufacturing processes. Light industrial facilities have a smaller environmental impact than heavy industry. In addition to manufacturing and processing, light industrial facilities can include distribution warehouses and storage facilities, dedicated cold storage facilities, and workshops.
