Recently, the USGBC offered a series of educational webinars about the latest developments regarding LEED v4. The USGBC is still looking for projects to participate in the v4 BETA program. If you are interested in registering a project with the v4 BETA program, you may do so until Greenbuild in November. Some perks in participating in the v4 BETA program include: first look at reference guides, certification process, test new LEED Online forms, provide feedback to the USGBC and GBCI teams, up to three CIRs, free promotion through USGBC Marketing, project recognition in Greenbuild 2013, assigned USGBC staff member to project, and many more. If you have a project currently registered under v2009 and would like to upgrade to v4, you can upgrade at no cost. Additionally, should your project demonstrate better performance under v2009, the USGBC will allow it to be reverted back from v4 at no cost.
If you are considering the v4 BETA program, some space types that the USGBC is looking for include schools, residential, hospitality (hotel), and campus projects. Please contact us if you desire more information!
