By nature, LEED for Existing Buildings is an ongoing process, and its prescriptive and performance strategies are intended to provide operational benefits throughout the life of the building. If the strategies are sustained, the building can maintain and even improve its performance over time. Projects that certify under any version of LEED for Existing Buildings must recertify at least once every five years in order to keep their certification up-to-date. The LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Recertification Guidance is focused on providing clear direction for Existing Buildings projects that are ready to recertify.
The LEED 2009 Reference Guide for Green Building Operations and Maintenance is the most comprehensive guide for the LEED for Existing Buildings Rating System.
This resource was designed to assist building owners and operations managers to improve and measure the performance when greening existing buildings.
