LEED v4 for Building Design and Construction Homes and Multifamily Finalized in 2013, the LEED v4 Green Building Rating System is a set of performance standards for certifying the design and construction of commercial, institutional and high-rise multifamily residential buildings, both public and private. The intent is to promote durable, affordable and sustainable materials and processes during the design, construction and operation of the built environment. The Rating System includes guides for Homes and Multifamily Low-Rise and Multifamily Mid-Rise. Prerequisites and Credits in the LEED v4 Building Design and Construction Rating System address the following Categories: Integrative Project Planning and Design or Integrative Process Location and Transportation (LT) Sustainable Sites (SS) Water Efficiency (WE) Energy and Atmosphere (EA) Materials & Resources (MR) Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) Innovation (IN) Regional Priority (RP) Prerequisites and Credits for each of the categories covered in the LEED Rating System for each building type are project rather than product focused. Therefore it is the cumulative effect of products integrated within building systems and assemblies and evaluated within the parameters of each of the topics that contribute to the points a project accrues during the certification process. LEED for Building Design and Construction (BD+C). Buildings that are new construction or major renovation. In addition, at least 60% of the project's gross floor area must be complete by the time of certification Homes and Multifamily Low-Rise. Single-family homes and multifamily residential buildings of 1 to 3 stories. Projects 3 to 5 stories may choose the Homes rating system that corresponds to the ENERGY STAR program in which they are participating. Multifamily Mid-Rise. Multifamily residential buildings of 4 to 8 occupiable stories above grade. The building must have 50% or more residential space. Buildings near 8 stories can inquire with USGBC about using Mid-Rise or New Construction, if appropriate.
