1) determine the applicability of a prerequisite or
estimates also provide a basis for gauging the

potential cost implications of each prerequisite or
credit on other GSA projects, outside of the study.
2) establish how LEED requirements compare to
existing GSA design standards; and
A standard format has been used for each credit
evaluation, as defined in the following pages.
3) estimate the potential cost impact to achieve a
prerequisite or credit, using the Courthouse
