Energy, Post-Occupancy and Codes-Where is LEED Going?

Just a little perspective from another building blog.

>http://buildingconfidence-llc.blogspot.com/2009/09/energy-post-occupancy-and-codes-where.html

This post at the Virginia Real Estate, Land Use & Construction Law Blog raises a number of the issues about LEED that I have been speaking about for a while. Is LEED going to win out, or will other green regulations take precedence? What is going to happen when buildings start getting decertified? What about evaluation of building performance?


Finally, you may ask why I post so much about green construction. The reason is it is not only the wave of the future, it is now. Even the White House is moving towards LEED certification. Builders who ignore developments in green building are keeping their heads in the sand.

Hi Greg - thanks for picking up on Andrea's comments. Green building and code related issues are definitely going to be a topic of on-going discussion for some time while these cross-currents sort themselves out.
