Can a project earn additional points by attempting SSc1: LEED Certified Design and Construction during recertification?


Projects pursuing recertification under LEED 2009 EB: O&M should select Option 6 of SS Credit 1: LEED Certified Design& Construction. This newly added option awards all four points to projects that have previously earned certification under any version of the LEED for Existing Buildings rating systems and can demonstrate consistent implementation of strategies and tracking of performance data.

SSc1 achievement is tied to the successful demonstration of performance data tracking and achievement of all additionally pursued performance requirements in the recertification application.
