Download your Free LEED v4 Product Data Submittal Coversheet
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 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 up front. Or reject the submittal and send it back. Pretty straightforward.
Send out the LEED cover sheet to all subs at the beginning of the project, let them know it is required, boom – you’re on your way.
This puts the onus on them to find the exact LEED information, making them part of the process, and making your life easier. We also provide some additional references, notes, and definitions in the second tab of the spreadsheet for you!
