The Cost of LEED
A Report on Cost Expectations to Meet LEED-NC 2009

The Cost of LEED: A Report on Cost Expectations to Meet LEED-NC 2009 is a 47-page report from BuildingGreen, LEEDuser, and a group of seasoned practitioners which explores cost premiums (if any) for each credit, with alternate scenarios.

Going credit-by-credit through LEED for New Construction v2009 (LEED-NC), The Cost of LEED itemizes the common approaches to achieving the performance that the credit requires and offers the view of an experienced cost estimator on the cost implications of adopting those technologies or design solutions.

The Cost of LEED can’t tell you what it might cost to locate your project near mass-transit for SSc4.1: Alternative Transportation—that’s too location and project specific for even a rough guess. But it can suggest a figure to put into your budget for any one of hundreds of specific technologies, and it identifies the other credits that might also benefit from that measure (so you can consider the appropriate synergistic benefits).
