Below are the 5 resources that I used the most throughout my thesis research. They each contain a summary of what they are and how they helped me.


1. LEED for Schools Reference Guide

This reference guide was used for my first analysis which went over which credits could have been sought to make Pasadena Elementary School a LEED Certified Building.



This website was a great resource for information on green buildings and LEED projects. I used it for my first analysis of LEED Certification and also when studying the building reuse in my fourth analysis.



I used this website as a resource for information on greenroofs. It discussed different types and different greenroof products.



This was the manufacturer's webiste for Green Roof Blocks which was the greenroof system I chose for my second analysis that designed a greenroof for Pasadena Elementary School.



This was the manufactuer's website for the solar lighting products that I chose to use in the parking lot for my third analysis. In addition to the product I chose, it also gave me information about solar lighting along with its benefits.
