Mandated pursuit of LEED Version 4 has been DELAYED!
The USGBC has extended the LEED v4 registration requirement deadline. Project teams may now register under either LEED v3 or v4 until October 31, 2016 – instead of June 2015 – to allow more time to prepare for the new standards.
Compared with the rollout of LEED v3 in 2009, project registrations for LEED v4 have been notably low. Feedback from the industry about the substantial changes between the two versions also influenced USGBC’s decision. A survey at the Greenbuild conference revealed 61% of respondents did not feel confident about pursuing LEED v4’s more rigorous standards.
