Introducing the new LEED Online

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

Smart, streamlined and simple: experience the new LEED Online

We’ve come a long way since the days of submitting for certification using 3-ring binders. LEED v4 projects will be the first to experience the new LEED Online platform with streamlined documentation and process. Spend your time achieving credits, not documenting them.

Watch the video 


Check out the highlights 

  Whether your project contains one or multiple buildings, find all of your LEED projects in one place.
  Fill out your project details, sign the agreement, and enter your payment information. It’s that simple.
  Project team members have access to every single credit. No more credit assignments.
  LEED Online saves in the background while you work, so you don’t have to worry about losing your progress.
  Access to forms, uploads, comments and credit language directly from the scorecard.
  Your project timeline gives an overview of all the steps of the process. Get a real-time snapshot of your progress.

Hi, I have some questions about LEED Online, if I have missed something about it. I am a member of USGBC. And, I wanted to try the website , if I wanted to register an assumed project. But, the problem is that from the first place when I just click on the link "Create an Account", I am transferred to the one of USGBC website which is notes that "You are not authorized to access this page." (When I tried to log in with my present USGBC account information, the system does not accept that.) So, what should I do to access to the further process? Or do I need to create another account other than my USGBC account and if so, how is that?Thanks!

9 weeks ago there were comments about unlimited access by all project members. There was no response from the LEED team and the problem has not been fixed. Major disaster just happened as an owner went into a project and changed files. This is not a small issue or something that can continue to be overlooked.

Hi Kath - thank you for your feedback. We're looking into ways to add controls for team members but still maintain the flexibility that has been asked for over the years - balance is the key. In the meantime, one of our experts will contact you directly.

Hi Carmen - all fixed!

TIP: if you're using Google Chrome you may need to open the browser tab, go to chrome://plugins and *ENABLE* Adobe Reader, and disable the Chrome PDF viewer. It took me a while to figure this out. It was causing an error message whenever I tried to open a form.

Hi everyone - thanks for your feedback. I would definitely urge you to bring your questions to the LEED Online webex we're hosting next week. Join the webinar to learn more about the new platform: 6 February 2013, 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST, Register now »
It seems that only Firefox 21 is the version recommended to work with forms, but the current version is 26... The USGBC has to speed up the adoption of the latest versions of all browsers
