Post Time:Feb 13,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:50

The U.S. Green Building Council announced that the third public comment period for the proposed 2012 update to its LEED green building program will open Mar. 1, 2012. The comment period, which will close on Mar. 20, marks the start of the LEED 2012 program delivery process, according to a Feb. 13 release.

This third draft of LEED has been refined to address technical stringency and rigor, measurement and performance tools and an enhanced user experience. The technical changes have been informed by market data, stakeholder-generated ideas, expert engagement and advances in technology, according to the release.

The third public comment documents, including technical refinements, scorecards and responses to comments from the previous public comment period, will be available here beginning Mar. 1. Members of the public can comment on any substantive changes made since the second public comment period, which ran from Aug. 1 through Sept. 14, 2011. Once the comment period process concludes, LEED 2012 will be balloted in June and launch in November.
