In 2005 New York City passed a law (Local Law No. 86) making a variety of green building and energy efficiency requirements for municipal buildings and other projects funded with money from the city treasury. The building requirements (described in detail below) apply to new construction, building additions, and substantial reconstructions of existing buildings. Substantial reconstruction is defined as a capital project that involves construction work affecting at least 50% of the floor area or that involves rehabilitation work in at least two of the three major building systems (HVAC, electrical, plumbing). The construction cost values below are adjusted annually for inflation. Program regulations were adopted in 2007 and then amended slightly in 2009 to reference updated green building rating standards. In June 2011 the Mayor issued Executive Order No.149 allowing the Mayor's Office of Environmental Coordination (MOEC) to evaluate developments affecting the green buildings industry and based on these developments, promulgate rules that increase the stringency of the current standards or expand the types of capital projects subject to the standards.
A series of additional laws enacted in 2009 make further requirements for publicly- and privately-owned existing buildings.
