I have a slightly different question in regarding to certifiable projects. One of our clients is keen to get a project in Iran LEED certified, however for political reasons it is not currently possible to either register or certify the project with GBCI. We are therefore planning to 'LEED future proof' the project by designing and constructing it to v4 with the hope to be able to obtain formal certification sometime in the future.
I'd like to hear from anyone who's tried to retrospectively secure certification outside the US.
Also, does GBCI/USGBC allow the terminology 'LEED certifiable' to be used by projects?
