Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) will release its third draft version of the LEED 2012 Rating System. The comment period, which is available from March 1 to 24, is the last step in the program delivery process and development of the LEED update. NRMCA will review the draft and will provide comments for those sections of the LEED system that affect concrete applications.

LEED 2012 includes changes to all major LEED rating systems that affect new construction, existing construction, homes and neighborhoods. While LEED 2009 has 49 credits and 9 prerequisites, the new LEED draft has 49 credits and 15 prerequisites. They are organized into 10 credit categories - up from 7 for LEED 2009. Many of the Pilot Credit programs such as Life Cycle Assessments, environmental sourcing and Type III Environmental Product Declarations received sufficient feedback and have been incorporated into the LEED 2012 draft. Once the comment period process concludes, LEED 2012 will be balloted this June and launched in November of this year.

All NRMCA members are encouraged to review the public comment draft on USGBC’s Web site once it becomes available. NRMCA will provide follow up articles regarding potential changes affecting our industry.
