LEED for Core and Shell v2.0 Precertification Instructions

LEED version: v2.0

LEED for Core and Shell v2.0 Precertification is a unique aspect of the LEED for Core and Shell v2.0 program that customers may pursue at their option.

Precertification is formal recognition by GBCI given to a candidate project for which the owner/developer has established the goal of developing a LEED-CS v2.0 certified building. LEED CS v2.0 Precertification is granted to projects after GBCI has reviewed a summary of early design stage submittal material. This material, which reflects a studied and realistic set of project goals and intentions, forms the basis for an award of Precertification at the project’s expected LEED-CS v2.0 Certification level.

Precertification is not required for, nor is it confirmation of, formal LEED-CS v2.0 Certification. Precertification is not LEED Certification. This is a voluntary submittal within the LEED for Core and Shell v2.0 program; projects can achieve LEED for Core and Shell v2.0 Certification without having pursued Precertification.
