Steps to get
       LEED Certificate


                 If we want a LEED Certificate, we need to follow the below
                         mentioned steps:

                     1. Understand and learn about LEED Certifications.

                     2. Get ready to go back to school i.e. study for the LEED
                         Professional Exam

                     3. Take the LEED Green Associate Exam (LEED AP Exam).

                 (Fact Source: http://www.wikihow.com/Become-LEED-Certified)

                 If an individual is appearing for the exam, s/he needs to go
                 ?
                    through three tiers.

                 First tier LEED Green Associate Exam Take this LEED Green
                 ?
                    Associate Exam as it is the first step. This covers the basics of
                    LEED Green Building Rating Systems.

                 The second tier is the LEED AP with specialty. This consists of
                 ?
                    five specialty LEED Exams. Individual candidate, before being
                    allowed to write one of these exams, must have had first
                    documented LEED Project experience.

                 ?

How to go
       About It?

                 1. Register yourself in some live class; attend a web seminar; study
                    with flash cards and take practice exams.

                 2. It is a closed book exam and can be taken on any of the six days
                    of a week at a Prometric testing centre. Since it is computer-
                    based exam, so the result will be out as soon as you finish the
                    exam.

                 Strategies for constructing a green and sustainable building should
                 be considered during the inception phase itself. A group that is into
                 construction of building should have engineer, architect, landscape
                 architect, contractor, developer, and owner along with system-
                 oriented approach towards a greener environment and
                 neighbourhood.

                 The project team has to be pro in bringing every team member
                 together for evaluating and assessing the project's strategies.

Why should your
       organization go
       for a LEED
       certification?

                 There are environmental as well as financial benefits of a LEED
                 certification:

                 1. The certification increases the value of your assets and reduces
                    operation costs.

                 2. Implementing LEED leads to conservation of energy.

                 3. It results into construction of greener, healthier and safer build-
                    ings for residential and commercial use, both.

                 4. It reduces waste.

                 5. Implementation of LEED results into construction of safe and
                    better walkable communities and localities.

                 6. It lowers the level of greenhouse gas emissions.

                 A building should be such that it sets an example for other build-
                 ings in terms of its commitment towards sustainability and greener
                 environment.

Why go for
       LEED
       Certification?
                 LEED certification is a proof to your clients, public and government
                 at large, that your building is green and sustainable in nature and
                 that its existence is not detrimental to the nature and environment.
                 Now, once an organization gets a LEED certificate, it becomes
                 eligible for receiving benefits from several government incentives.
                 This can prompt public's interest in your
                 project.

                 Types of certifications for new
                 construction:
                 1. Certified
                 2. Silver
                 3. Gold
                 4. Platinum

                 This covers new construction as well as existing building
                 operations. However, there are areas including new home
                 construction and neighbourhood developments, to name a few
                 that are yet to get covered under the standards.

What are the
       measures you should
       adopt to get a LEED
       certification?




                 For any building, satisfying all LEED criteria and earning minimum
                 40 points on a 110-point LEED rating system scale makes it eligible
                 to receive a LEED certification.

                 While a home owner on the other hand, must earn a minimum 145
                 points on a 136-point scale for the home's construction.

                    to get some points out of the way. However, in reality it is not so
                    and the option is more for a reality check.

                 LEED credits are many including water efficiency, energy and
                 atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental
                 quality, innovation and design process, and sustainable sites.

What do the
       LEED credits
       imply?
                 ?
                 Sustainable site credit comprises of the criterion where no
                 building should be constructed on farmland, wetland and
                 endangered species habitat. This also deals with connectivity to
                 public transportation.

                 A location is said to be environmentally sustainable if it causes
                 ?
                    no harm to the local habitats and encourage the existence of
                    farmland. An example of this could be a green roof so as to
                    make it look like the natural habitat of certain birds.

                    construction materials are such that they absorb more heat and
                    retain the Sun rays falling on the building. On the other hand,
                    natural materials reflect the Sun's rays and don't add up to the
                    level of greenhouse gas emissions.

                 Using materials with recycled content; locally available resources
