Projects using LEED 2009* must be registered with USGBC’s Green Business Certification Inc. by October 31, 2016. Projects registered after that date will be required to use the new LEED Version 4. LEED 2009 will continue for projects registered prior to the deadline.
Here are some important LEED v4 changes to be aware of:
- Energy and Daylight credits are much more challenging.
- Minimum Energy Performance requires either Title 24-2013 or ASHRAE 90.1-2010 as a Baseline.
- Gold and Platinum certified projects will be harder to achieve.
- Early Energy Performance Planning will become even more critical under the LEED v4.
To reduce you project expenses and ensure your LEED target will be achieved, bring the Brummitt team on board early in Schematics.
