LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout, and significant retrofit. And LEED for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.
Building rails along the existing Al-Can Highway would save a lot of money and pollution from trucked, flown, and shipped goods to/from Alaska.
In addtion tourism would increase. I would use it! I have driving from the lower 48 to Alaska - a VERY long drive, but would be great on rails!
