The LEED rating system thrives because it encourages competition: LEED scores enable comparisons of buildings based on the credits they achieve. The LEED Dynamic Plaque, a platform for continuing certification of LEED buildings, harnesses this approach in a new way. It compares buildings by using measured data to create a LEED performance score. This global building performance score drives more active, long-term management of real estate assets while giving project teams latitude to be creative in how they improve; the score allows teams to focus on building performance rather than LEED compliance. In this session, Scot Horst will tell the story of performance in LEED, give examples of how the LEED Dynamic Plaque is working in buildings, and explain how the platform leverages the core of the LEED rating system to encourage action. He will describe the dynamic plaque’s distinctive approach to scoring, as well as why LEED is uniquely situated to define how we compare buildings going forward.
Identify how LEED has, and continues to, encourage building performance.
Explain how the LEED Dynamic Plaque relates to the LEED rating system.
Describe the LEED Performance Score.
