Using a LEED submittal cover sheet:
There are some pretty easy best practices that can really facilitate the documentation for materials and even low-emitting products.
Here’s one that you think would be commonplace, but at least in this Badger’s neck of the woods (literally), we don’t see all that frequent – using a required LEED Submittal Cover Sheet for all subcontractors. By having a coversheet, where you require the subcontractor to provide cost and any relevant LEED data (recycled content percentages, distance from extraction and manufacture, VOC content, etc), you get all this information upfront. Or reject the submittal and send it back. Pretty straightforward! Download your free LEED v4.1 product submittal coversheet bellow.
