Draft of LEED 2012 Available for Comment

The USGBC recently released the first draft of LEED 2012. Green building professionals have until December 31, 2010 to let their voicec be heard.  According to the USGBC, a second public comment period is expected to be opened from July through August, 2011.The LEED 2012 rating system is targeted for release on November 7, 2012.

By the way, under consideration in the first draft of “LEED 2012”, is consideration to change from requiring one LEED AP for credit IDc2.  Being considered is a requirement that a LEED AP with a relevant specialty (such as LEED AP BD+C, or LEED AP Homes) must be on the team. In addition, two other team members must also be LEED APs (any specialty), or LEED Green Associates (LEED GA).  In our view, LEED regulatory complications have already gone quite far enough  – and many in the public and private sectors are noticing.
