Hello all,

We have done several LCA for LEED, and we submitted them with the construction review since that is how it's defined in the LEED guideline, however, on LEED online it appears as a design credit. While I support and push that the LCA process starts during the design phase to be able to assess the impacts and take decisions in the project, it makes more sense for it to be submitted during construction since at that point we would have a more accurate picture of the project, so my questions is:

For LEED is it a design or construction credit? And if it is a construction credit, what happens if we submit it during design?

Thank you,
