Canada Green Building Council releases new LEED standards
The Canada Green Building Council is set to launch LEED Canada for New Construction and Major Renovations (NC) 2009 and LEED Canada Core and Shell Development (CS) 2009.
These updated rating systems include current reference standards, re-weighted credits, and improved credit compliance pathways.
LEED Canada NC 2009 will allow for faster review of applications and a streamlined certification process.
Registration for new projects will open on June 21, 2010.
Projects registered with the CaGBC before June 21 will have the option to continue certification under LEED Canada NC 1.0 or opt into the new LEED Canada NC 2009 system.
Reference guides for the new systems will be available to order at the national conference starting June 9th, 2010.
For more information on the CaGBC visit www.cagbc.org.
