This is such a critical part of informing plan decisions in relation to the marketplace value or buyer acceptance. I am curious how value engineering exercise at the construction stage has influenced alignment with the plan certification exercise?
In our experience, retaining targetted points as we progress through the municipal approval process is sometimes challenging. Governing engineering standards can both help, but also hinder the built outcome of the plan designed thourgh the LEED ND lens. It is not a criticism but a curiousity as to how we adjust for changes in one of financial, social, and environmental parameters of the evaluation.
