USGBC announces LEED Automation

Home News USGBC announces LEED Automation

CHICAGO—The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched Automation, a program designed to streamline and create capacity for LEED building certification process. The program enables LEED Online, the online tool used to submit documentation and certify LEED projects, to interact with third-party technology platforms.

“Automation takes the green building process to a new level,” said Chris Smith, USGBC’s COO. “We recognized several years ago that we cannot focus only on the evolution of LEED and its continuous improvement. The technology used to administer the certification process is also evolving to increase customers’ business agility through improved data, information and content integration.”

LEED Automation works similarly to an app. It will perform three key functions for project teams and users of LEED Online by seamlessly integrating third-party applications, he noted. “It will provide automation of various LEED documentation processes, deliver customers a unified view of their projects, and standardize LEED content and distribute it across multiple technology platforms.”

This marks the first time USGBC has opened LEED Online to the software application market and third-party software developers. It represents the initial step in what USGBC expects will be the addition of many technology partners in the future.
