Credit Credit Description How Siena Recycled Rubber Products Contribute * Possible points Earned

Material and Resources

MR 4 Recycled Content Use materials with recycle content such that the sum of postconsumer content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 10% or 20% (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project Siena Recycled Rubber Products are composed of up to 82% post-consumer tire rubber helping to contribute points towards this credit. 1-2 Points
MR 5 Regional Material Use building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% or 20% (based on cost) of the total materials value. If only a fraction of a product or material is extracted, harvested, or recovered and manufactured locally, then only that percentage (by weight) can contribute tot the regional value. Siena Recycled Rubber Products manufacturing plant is within 500 yards from its source of recycled tire rubber which constitutes for the majority of the product, therefore this product can help contribute to regional material credits to a project within five hundred miles of its manufacturing facility in Lebanon, PA. 1-2 Points

Indoor Environmental Quality

Prerequisite 3 Minimum Acoustical Performance (LEED for Schools ONLY) Design classrooms and other core learning spaces to include sufficient sound-absorptive finishes for compliance with reverberation time requirements specified in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 60-2002. The sound absorption properties of the Siena Recycled Rubber products contribute to ANSI/ASHRAE standard 60-2002 that all core learning spaces like a gymnasium greater than or equal to 20,000 cubic feet are design to have a reverberation time of 1.5 seconds or less. Required
Credit 9 Enhanced Acoustical Performance (LEED for Schools ONLY) Design the building shell, classroom partitions and other core learning space partitions to meet the Sound Transmission Class (STC) requirements of ANSI Standard 60-2002 to meet an STC rating of at least 35. The sound absorption properties of the Siena Recycled Rubber products contribute to ANSI/ASHRAE standard 60-2002 that all core learning spaces like a gymnasiums have a higher STC rating to provide a higher level of sound attenuation. 1 Point

Innovation and Design

Pilot Credit: Acoustics (New Construction and Retail ONLY) To provide workspaces that promote occupants' well-being, productivity and communications through effective acoustic design Can contribute to meeting the sound reverberation time requirements of less than 2 seconds within a stadium or gymnasium. 1 Point

Material and Resources

MR 3 Sustainably Sourced Materials and Products Use salvaged materials or materials with at least 10% (based on cost) of recycled material, regionally sourced material manufactured within 500 miles, rapidly renewable materials, and/or wood certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council. Siena Recycled Rubber products are composed of up to 82% post-consumer tire rubber. Siena Recycled Rubber Product's manufacturing plant is less than 1 mile from its source of recycled tire rubber, which constitutes for the majority of the product. 1-4 Points

Indoor Environmental Quality

IEQ Credit 2: Acoustic Comfort To provide building occupants with an indoor healing environment free of intrusive or disruptive levels of sound. Siena Recycled Rubber products sound absorptive properties can help contribute to SV Guidelines for Acoustical finishes and help contribute to earning points within this credit specifically in Physical Therapy sections within healthcare facilities. 1-2 Points
