I like this video and explanation very much. Will there also be one showing older buildings? I feel that so much needs to be done with existing building stock, and many, many people don't realize renovated buildings and ongoing O+M work can be informed by the LEED instruments. Also, the video may inadvertently reinforce the idea that green buildings are glitzy, highly glazed and boldly new.
