Bicycle Storage & Changing Rooms Intent
Reduce pollution and land development impacts from automobile use.
For commercial or institutional buildings, provide secure bicycle storage with
convenient changing/shower facilities (within 200 yards of the building) for
5% or more of regular building occupants. For residential buildings, provide
covered storage facilities for securing bicycles for 15% or more of building
occupants in lieu of changing/shower facilities.
❏ For commercial projects: provide the LEED Letter Template, signed by
the Architect or responsible party, declaring the distance to bicycle storage
and showers from the building entrance and demonstrating that these
facilities can accommodate at least 5% of building occupants.
For residential projects: provide the LEED Letter Template, signed by the
architect or responsible party, declaring the design occupancy for the
buildings, number of covered bicycle storage facilities for securing bicycles,
and demonstrating that these facilities can accommodate at least
15% of building occupants.
