Certified Projects

The two-year Pilot Program, which began in June 2010, included 162 registered projects. To date 30 projects have achieved SITES certification. An additional 50+ projects continue to pursue certification using the 2009 Rating System.

The majority (87%) of certified projects redeveloped previously degraded sites, with 20% remediating contaminated sites. Most projects are located in urban (60%) or suburban (33%) areas, and on sites from 1-5 acres (50%) or 6-100 acres (27%). In addition, 37% of projects were privately funded, 33% were publically funded, and 30% were public/private partnerships. Eight of the SITES certified projects (27%) also include building(s) that have or are pursuing LEED certification. Case studies with additional details on each of the certified projects can be found below.
