About: LEED Documentation Tips—From LEED Reviewers

LEED reviewers respond to some of the most frequently asked questions, including:

  • How does the LEED review process work behind the scenes and who are the reviewers?
  • When is it appropriate to contact GBCI and what should I expect in response?
  • What are some tips for submitting high-quality documentation and what mistakes should I avoid?
  • What resources will help me ensure that the project complies with the latest LEED requirements?

This part also covers “generalist” LEED credit tips and covers the most common mistakes seen on project information forms, Location, Sites, Process, Water, Innovation, and other topics, some of which span multiple credits and credit categories. Some tips are specific to LEED BD&C, but most are relevant for all LEED rating systems.

Learning objectives:

  1. Know when and how to contact GBCI to receive clarification on LEED documentation and discuss technical issues
  2. Avoid consistency problems with key data points on your LEED documentation
  3. Perform a basic quality control check of your LEED documentation prior to submittal
  4. Submit high-quality documentation of key LEED sites, water, location, and materials credits

About: EQ and Energy LEED Documentation Tips — From LEED Reviewers

LEED reviewers who specialize in energy- and ventilation-related LEED prerequisites and credits discuss the most essential topics to completing quality documentation, including:

  • What the current energy and ventilation spreadsheets look like and how to use them.
  • How to do the same quality control check of your energy model that a LEED reviewer will do, so that you can catch mistakes first.
  • Key facets of LEED v4 energy and ventilation requirements that even experienced LEED professionals might not know about.
  • How to document your ventilation system type using USGBC’s spreadsheet.

This part also covers energy and ventilation, with a focus on the main energy efficiency and ventilation prerequisites and credits. It also touches on other issues, including renewable energy, commissioning, and natural ventilation. All LEED professionals will learn from the course, but the focus is on LEED BD&C requirements and documentation.

Learning objectives:

  1. Use the minimum energy performance calculator to conduct a quality control review of your energy model
  2. Use the minimum indoor air quality performance calculator to accurately document your ventilation systems and avoid LEED reviewer questions
  3. Provide the correct commissioning documents under LEED v4
  4. Submit high-quality documentation of essential LEED energy and ventilation prerequisites and credits
