Have questions about LEED v4? We have answers.

Published on 9 May 2013 Written by Selina Holmes Posted in LEED

Are you an energy technical solution provider wondering how you can help LEED projects achieve the new Demand Response credit?  Are you a practitioner who wants to know why air testing is valued at two points when the flush-out is valued at 1 point for the EQ: Indoor Air Quality Assessment credit? Or perhaps you're a building owner who wants to know overall how the changes in the water credit category of LEED v4 will effect your existing building's pursuit of LEED.

Whatever your question, log onto Twitter May 22 from noon to 1 p.m. to get answers from USGBC's very own VP of LEED Technical Development, Brendan Owens, who will be tweeting from our @usgbc handle. To join the conversation, make sure you are following @usgbc and use #LEEDv4 when asking a question. He'll be ready to answer a wide-range of LEED questions, from the super-technical questions to the more general.

And don't forget – the LEED ballot opens June 1, 2013, for all those who have registered.

LEED v4 question as to which rating to use. I have a 75,000 SF academic building, 3 floors with various multipurpose class labs supporting art, music and theater as well as faculty offices, art, English, communications & learning support classrooms. Is it better to use LEED v4 for BD+C: Schools OR LEED v4 for BD+C: New Construction? Thank you, Katy Sheesley

Hi Katherine – great question. Have you looked at the updated Rating System Selection for LEED v4? That's the best place to start. If the academic building will be used for k-12 students, I believe BD+C: Schools is the rating system for you but would need more details to make a formal recommendation. Feel free to email me at [email protected].

The last day to take the credential exams with LEED v2009 content will be June 15, 2014. The first day to take the exams with the new LEED v4 content will be June 30, 2014. No tests will be administered in between these dates.

After v4 launches in November, will the cost to register under LEED 2009 increase? What will be fees be for 2009 registration vs. v4 registration?

When does LEED v4 certification start? When does LEED v3 cetrification end?
Director of Programs, Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council
Hi Layne - LEED v4 opens for registration at Greenbuild 2013. Projects have the option of registering to use either LEED 2009 or LEED v4 until June 1, 2015 (so, certification for LEED 2009 will end somewhere around 2020).
Please kindly advise me those questions as below: 1. May I know where can I select the Prerequisite Ieqp2 and mrp1 that i wish to appeal ? if i am going to appeal this two credits. Is it just click the complete button for Ieqp2 and mrp1 is enough ? 2. If submit , which button I need to click for payment ? 3. How many days it take time for the result ?
