Sustainable Design & LEED Certified

  The Port of San Francisco is a public enterprise committed to promoting a balance of maritime, recreational, industrial, transportation, public access and commercial activities on a self-supporting basis through appropriate management and development of the waterfront for the benefit of the public.

Pier 27 was constructed using sustainable design practices in accord with Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) standards. LEED is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Pier 27's LEED certification and event vendor practices support green event standards.

Features that contribute to Pier 27's LEED “Silver” rating include:

• Diverting more than 75% of construction waste materials from landfill
• A roof drain system that sends rainwater to storage tanks where it is then used for flushing toilets and landscape irrigation
• Indoor plumbing fixtures operate 40% more efficient than existing code
• Landscape design resulted in more than 50% irrigation reduction compared to a mid-summer baseline
• Storm water not used for irrigation is treated before release into the bay
• Energy efficient building envelope, lighting, and HVAC systems reduce energy needs by more than 18% compared to a mid-summer baseline
• Building materials composed heavily of recycled, regional, and Forest Stewardship Council certified wood
• Materials selected for non/low-toxicity for adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, flooring systems, and composite woods
• Vehicle area includes parking for fuel-efficient vehicles
