The city of Las Vegas announced it will begin a Green Building Rebate Program to stimulate new green building construction and provide energy efficiency retrofits to existing buildings.

The green building program provides rebates for new construction and existing commercial and residential retrofits for buildings who construct buildings or projects to one of the following green building program standards:
LEED
The Southern Nevada Green Building Partnership
Green Globes
NV Energy's Energy Plus New Homes program
NV Energy's Sure Bet Program

The rebates will be made available for expedited plans checks, building permit fees, and certifications. Additionally, the project or building will receive public recognition on the city's web site and in future promotional materials. Projects that begin after July 1, 2009 are eligible.
 
The application process is as follows. The builder chooses the respective green building program and notifies the city of its intent to participate. Once the project is completed, the builder requests the eligible rebates, which will be paid to the builder. The Las Vegas City Council established a special green building revenue fund so rebates will be given on a priority basis contingent upon fund availability.

MEP design considerations for rural hospitals

Rural hospitals present unique opportunities and challenges for healthcare facility operators. Oftentimes, the infrastructure and building systems have not been updated for years and require significant improvements in order to meet today’s modern medical demands. Additionally, as these smaller, more remote hospitals are acquired by larger regional and national healthcare systems, the first step by new ownership is often to update and rehabilitate the building.
