What is project pre-certification?

Answer

Pre-certification allows owners to market the proposed green features of a building to potential tenants looking to occupy LEED-certified space. Projects that have gone through a pre-certification review cannot call themselves LEED-certified, but they can state that they are on the path toward certification. Only projects registered under the LEED for Core & Shell rating system can apply for pre-certification.

A pre-certification review is conducted in the same manner as a combined design and construction review with the following exception: No credits or prerequisites are awarded during a pre-certification review. Such credits are instead marked as "anticipated."
