Innovative Design

LEED information about Innovative Design

To promote innovation, LEED provides credits to projects that accomplish incomparable performance in sustainability that go beyond the LEED Green Building Rating System or testing a pilot credit. Unlike other chapters, there are no prerequisites in this chapter. One can obtain six points through 2 options: innovation in design (5 points) and having a LEED Accredited Professional on the project (up to 1 point). Both are discussed further in detail in this chapter.
