Behind the Scenes on LEED 2012: New Developments in Credit Documentation, Reference Guides, and More
As we've seen from the LEED 2012 drafts and public comment periods, major changes are underway for the LEED rating systems.
At the same time, credit documentation, Reference Guide development, and other education work for LEED 2012 are all underway concurrent with the public comment period and balloting process. According to USGBC, this work is "operating under the guiding principles of creating intuitive and flexible documentation that focuses on collecting key data points for certification, Reference Guide content that enables project team understanding and achievement of requirements, and education for the successful implementation of new and challenging content in LEED 2012."
A first look at 2012 documentation
LEEDuser is excited to offer the general public one of the first opportunities to look "behind the scenes" at development of the nuts-and-bolts documentation pieces that will become the underpinning of LEED 2012. This free video is offered by LEEDuser, with presentations from USGBC.
The video includes a Q&A session with attendees of the original webcast.
