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.
