National Roofing Contractors Association has released LEED v4: Roofing-related Provisions, a document that examines the roofing-related provisions of LEED v4.
The publication offers background information, descriptions of possible roofing-related credits and prerequisites for rating systems for the Building Design and Construction and Building Operations and Maintenance categories. It also includes a listing of typical LEED-related submittals and explains which roofing-related provisions have changed in LEED v4 compared to previous LEED editions.
Launched in November 2013, LEED v4 is a significant overhaul of the rating system. It includes a reworking of materials and resources credits to incorporate disclosure of environmental and health effects. It also addresses the potential toxicity of building product ingredients.
