July 14, 2005: LEED For New Construction Comment Period Open

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is now soliciting comments on the second draft of the LEED for New Construction rating system (LEED-NC), version 2.2. The second public comment period is open until July 30, 2005 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

The changes proposed in this version of the rating system would not apply to currently registered LEED-NC version 2.0 or 2.1 projects or any projects that register prior to the release of LEED-NC version 2.2. These changes would only apply to projects that register after this new version is balloted by the USGBC membership and released for public use.

Anyone can comment on this draft after registering a user profile on the USGBC Web site. The USGBC will respond to all comments, and post the comments and responses (without commenter's names or organizations) to the USGBC site. The resulting draft will go before the USGBC membership for ballot. The official public release of the rating system is expected in the fall 2005. To comment, go to www.usgbc.org/myUSGBC, log in, and then click on "LEED Draft Comments" on the sidebar.
