New LEED Guidance for Campuses and Multiple Buildings
4/2/14 Update: LEED Campus Guidance For Projects on a Shared Site (formerly the Application Guide for Multiple Buildings and On-Campus Building Projects) has been updated to include guidance for LEED v4 Rating Systems and reflect changes in LEED Online. Two additional appendices have been added as quick look-up tables for determining campus and group eligibility for v4 credits. Finally, additional credit-specific guidance has been added for several BD&C and EB:O&M v2009 credits.
2/25/14 Update: The links below have been updated in line with USGBC's new website. Also, LEED Online for Campus projects is now simply part of the new LEED Online.
10/31/11 Update: USGBC has released complete "Guidance for Multiple Buildings and On-Campus Projects," for LEED certification of multiple buildings on the same site. Officially called the 2010 Application Guide for Multiple Buildings and On-Campus Building Projects Release 2, or 2010 AGMBC v2. for short, the document provides complete campus guidance for LEED 2009 projects for the first time. Part 1 of the guide was released last year and ever since, LEED users have been awaiting Part 2, which was supposed to explain how to certify buildings as a group. This new release includes Part 1 and Part 2, folding it all into one document.
However, LEED Online v3 functionality to support group certification is not yet available. It is anticipated in the 1st Quarter of 2012. Until functionality is available, all projects must be registered individually.
What do you think of the new guidance? Is it useful? Comprehensible? What questions do you have?
