How can I get my building project LEED certified and how much will it cost?

Project teams should first register with USGBC; this serves as a declaration of intent to have a project LEED Certified. The most successful LEED project teams report an integrated design process, with LEED in mind from the project’s inception. Additionally, LEED project teams will need to provide documentation from various stages in the project’s design and or construction. USGBC encourages project teams to register as early as possible.
