Real Life LEED: VP of LEED Implementation Explains v3 LEED-Online Upgrades

Real Life LEED: VP of LEED Implementation Explains v3 LEED-Online Upgrades: "Faster, Smarter and More Robust - The New LEED Online

By Mike Opitz, P.E., LEED AP, Vice President of LEED Implementation, U.S. Green Building Council

This April, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched LEED v3, the newest version of the LEED green building certification program. A culmination of several years of visioning, planning and development effort by the USGBC community, LEED v3 takes LEED’s ongoing evolution and growth to the next level. LEED v3 is a platform for implementing the improvements and growth in all aspects of the LEED program over the next several years. The three core components of LEED v3 are: LEED 2009 – technical advancements to the LEED credits and points in the rating systems; the re-launch of LEED Online – the tool LEED project teams use to manage the LEED registration and certification processes has been upgraded to be smarter and faster, with many new features; and the new certification model – an expanded certification infrastructure based on ISO standards, administered by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) through 10 independent, third-party certifying bodies for improved capacity, speed and performance."

Being able to manage the LEED certification progress online is a great. I think it is even a perk.. I have been in the construction business for years and always prefer working in municipalities that offer online building permitting and inspection requests. I even became LEED accredited through the help of an online course by Clean Edison though I wish I would have attended their classes. I hear they are very helpful. We are in a technology ages so it only makes sense to streamline LEED certification by making the process available online.
