LEED-INDIA for New Construction and Major Renovations is a green building rating system that helps to guide and design high-performance commercial buildings.
Commercial buildings include (but are not limited to) offices, retail and service establishments, institutional buildings (libraries, schools, museums, etc.,) hotels and buildings of four or more habitable stories.
Basically, this programme is for those buildings where the design and operation is fully in the scope and control of owner or the developer. (For leased out or rented spaces LEED® India Core & Shell will be a better option)
If the application of LEED-INDIA for a particular building type is questionable, IGBC encourages the project team to verify using LEED-INDIA checklists that are provided with each Rating System.
The project is a viable candidate for LEED-INDIA certification if it can meet all prerequisites and achieve the minimum number of points to earn the Certified level of LEED-INDIA project certification.
The LEED NC V. 1.0 Green Building Rating System for New Construction and Major Renovations is a set of performance standards for certifying the design and construction of commercial or institutional buildings and high-rise residential buildings of all sizes, both public and private. The intent is to promote healthful, durable, affordable, and environmentally sound practices in building design and construction.
Prerequisites and credits in the LEED INDIA V. 1.0 for New Construction and Major Renovations addresses 6 topics:
Certified 26-32 points | Silver 33-38 points | Gold 39-51 points | Platinum 52-69
