Happy Holidays Everyone!
Green Cincinnati Education Advocacy’s goal is to help promote Green Building and provide the public with the resources needed to advocate for the U.S Green Building Council's LEED Certification process. 1. We are hired to fill out the forms required to receive LEED Certification, 2. produce brochures about products like windows that will help achieve LEED certification, 3. teach classes to pass the LEED AP exam and also 4. take on interns to work on our projects as they study for their LEED GA and AP accreditation.
You've submitted the required materials -- dotted all the "i"s and crossed those "t"s -- and now you wait. The anticipation of getting your LEED review back from the USGBC is high. When you get the email you're hoping for the best. After you start reading the review, your heart sinks because the sustainable sites prerequisites wasn't met. The PDF file was corrupted by a computer, somewhere. Why didn't they ask for it again? The plans were perfect and everything was duplicated on them anyway. You're in a knife fight and they just knocked your knife away.
