GREAT NEWS for the Preservation and Sustainability Worlds! LEED v. 3 is coming out for Public Comment on Monday, May 19th. Bravo to USGBC and everyone who has worked so hard to help make LEED, the leading third party rating system in the US, reflect all the pieces of our culture. Below is the link to my blog posting of March 24th which describes this new version of LEED and the integration of preservation metrics into it. This is what we’ve all been waiting for folks. We will post LEED v. 3 on this blog and our website on Monday and encourage everyone to read it and review and send your comments into USGBC. Our Sustainable Preservation Coalition will also be collecting comments to send in together.
Read my blog from March 24th, updated May 6th, to learn the impact of LEED v. 3 on preservation and social/cultural metrics.
