This study concerns MSU buildings being renovated, remodeled, or built new with LEED certified. For those building being renovated or remodeled, the current lighting needs should be brought into consideration so that we may decide on the amount of energy efficient lighting to use to achieve a satisfactory level of illumination. Current types and amounts of water fixtures should be taken into account as well, since these may be replaced with water saving alternatives. For the buildings being demolished and rebuilt or replaced, care should be taken that green building practices are included in the designs of new construction.

The surety bond producer will most likely send the contractor a perqualification checklist to gain an understanding of the firm’s business and needs before their first live encounter. This initial meeting with the contractor is more than a simple meet and greet; the surety bond producer needs to develop in-depth understanding of the firm’s business, and helps tailor the contractor’s submission for the specific requirements of the surety company underwriter.
