| v2 - LEED 2.0

Age of building

SSp2 | Required

Intent

Provide a distinction between buildings that are eligible to apply for LEED-NC certification and buildings that are eligible to apply for LEED for Existing Buildings certification.

Requirements

Buildings that have not been certified under LEED-NC must be at least two years old before they can achieve certification under LEED for Existing Buildings.

  • Buildings that are more than two years old can register to participate in LEED for Existing Buildings and apply for LEED for Existing Buildings certification as soon as they are prepared to do so.
  • LEED-NC Certified buildings that are less than two years old can also register to participate in LEED for Existing Buildings and apply for LEED for Existing Buildings certification or re-certification as soon as they are prepared to do so.
  • Buildings that are less than two years old that have not been certified under LEED-NC can register to participate in LEED for Existing Buildings but must reach two years of age before LEED for Existing Buildings certification will be awarded by USGBC.
