Integrative Project Planning requires the project to conduct a preliminary meeting with our team and key members of your project team early in the design process. As part of the meeting, we will create an action plan that identifies the following.
Mid-construction verification visit
LEED residential requires a mid-construction verification site visit, sometimes called the “pre-drywall” visit. During this visit, the Green Rater and Energy Rater will verify certain building systems that are only visible while the building walls remain open, such as efficient framing measures, insulation and installed ducting.
Final construction verification visit
Once construction is complete, including landscape, and all supplemental documentation has been provided, the Green Rater and Energy Rater return for the second mandatory site visit. During this visit, the Green Rater verifies that you have met all remaining prerequisite and credit requirements, and the Energy Rater conducts the required performance testing.
LEED for Homes certification involves four main steps:
Registering project by providing basic project information and submitting payment.
verification of project milestones and achievements through the on-site verification process with a LEED Green Rater. You will need to provide the necessary information, calculations and documentation to your Green Rater.
Submiting LEED application to the Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) for review.
Receive the certification from GBCI and promote your accomplishment.
