How do I upgrade a LEED v2 registered project to LEED 2009 (v3)


Projects registered under a LEED v2 rating system may upgrade to the newer (LEED v3/2009) version of the rating system. The cost for doing so will be the difference between the registration fee already paid and the present registration fee for the v3/2009 rating system to which the project team would like to upgrade. Please use the LOv2 Project Transfer Help content in LEED Online v3 for step-by-step upgrade instructions.

Who is eligible?

  • Project must be in one of the following rating systems: LEED CI, LEED CS, LEED NC (v2.1 and v2.2), LEED for Schools, LEED EB (all versions)
  • Registration fee must be paid
  • Project must be registered but not submitted for review
  • Only project admin can transfer the project

    • Step-by-step directions

      • Project transfer will be initiated from LEED Online v3.
      • The project admin should log in to LEED Online v3.
      • Select project transfer.
      • Enter LEED Online v2 project access ID. (To find your project access ID, go to LEED Online v2 > Project Summary > Basics.)
      • Select transfer.
      • LEED Online v3 will validate the project access, if eligible.
      • New LEED Online v3 project will be created with the transferred information.
      • To complete the transfer, select the 'My Projects' tab and process payment.
      • Conversion is complete and the project is available at LEED Online v3 > My Projects.
      • The LEED Online v2 project will be deleted and removed from the LEED Online v2 project list.

      Please note

      • Transfers are not reversible
      • Your rating system will be upgraded to a LEED v3 rating system
      • Once the project is transferred to LEED Online v3 you will not be able to access the project from LEED Online v2
      • You will lose all the information except those items detailed below under ‘items transferred’
