LEED Volume Program: Overview and Process provides a general review of the volume certification process, defining terminology and outlining the three major program phases.

The LEED Volume Program was designed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to meet industry needs for a streamlined approach to certifying like buildings and spaces. The program — through the use of prototype standards — allows organizations to simplify the LEED documentation for multiple buildings or spaces of a similar type or management, achieving certification faster and at a lower cost than with individual building reviews. Acknowledging that organizations can best identify the uniformity and similarities of their projects, the program was designed to be flexible, allowing owners to define the criteria for grouping like buildings and the prototype credits to pursue.
