Need advice for Green Tier 1 in Los Angeles (residential)


I've done mandatory green requirements for residential projects.

But for Tier 1, I had only one experience 4 years ago. Right, It is long time ago.

Also, at that time I was almost done with Green Corrections, but for some reason this project was stopped. Well...I have only 0.8 experience of tier 1~

so my questions are...

1. someone recommends to reduce the building instead of getting Green Tier 1.

Green tier 1 is for additional 20% sq.ft.

I am adding up 2200 s.f.(20%) on the top of max RFA 11,000. It is a development project located on the top of the hill in Brentwood. Would it be worth getting tier 1 when considering the time/ effort  and its value?

2. This building will be all concrete structure which is accessible from rooftop level as parking area. As part of the tier 1 requirement, I wonder if the concrete rooftop (parking) can be considered as "cool roof"  To do so, how should I detail out the rooftop finish?

3. And...any additional comments, warning or recommendation for Tier 1?


Thank you all

Pretty much all exposed concrete has an SRI of over 29 and should comply with the cool roof requirements.
