First green - LEED

LEED HOMES

LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. This presentation discusses the basics of the LEED for Homes Rating System, including benefits and the local delivery system.

Preliminary Rating

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.
