A: At least one design-phase credit must be attempted and marked complete in LEED Online before you will be able to submit for design review.Q: Why can’t I submit for a combined review?
A: All prerequisites and the minimum number of credits for certification must be attempted and marked complete in LEED Online. Marking any credit as “deferred” will preclude you from submitting for combined review.Q: How do I respond to review comments and submit my clarifications?
A: The team member assigned to a credit requiring clarification or the Project Team Administrator should provide the requested clarifications directly within the credit template. Upload any requested documents and, if necessary, provide a narrative outlining the changes. Any required changes can be made directly in the template.
Once the review team’s comments have been addressed, you will need to mark each credit/prerequisite requiring clarification as complete. Once all are marked as such, a submit button will become available on the Credit Scorecard and Status page of LEED Online.Q: How do I change the role of Project Team Administrator to a different individual?
A: The current Project Team Administrator should email GBCI certification staff
requesting the change. The name of the project team member to be designated the new Project Team Administrator should be included in this request.Q: How can I appeal a denied credit or prerequisite?
A: Any denied credits can be appealed either after the final design review or after the final construction review. New credits can be attempted and submitted during the initial review or through the appeal process.
To appeal, you will need to click the “Appeal” button after the final review has been completed. The project team will then be prompted to submit payment, at which time you should select your payment method. Once payment has been submitted, you will then need to upload the proper documentation under the credits/prerequisites being appealed, and mark them as “complete.” The “Submit Appeal for Review” button will appear, and must be clicked in order to submit the appeal to GBCI for review.
