I need some advice on the LEED volume certification program.
1) In the LEED volume program, we can include projects from different locations (even outside US) owned and managed by the same organization. Am I right to say that?
2) Do we need to achieve the same level of LEED certification (as per pre-certified Prototype) for all 25 project registered for LEED volume? Or can we have different certification levels since some projects may be eligible to score some credits depending on the project locations.
Appreciate your advice.

Our apologies for not responding to this post earlier on, but I think I can answer your two questions above.
1) Yes, you can include projects from different locations (even outside the US) provided that the projects fall within the limits of uniformity (design and/or management) that you’ve set up within your prototype.
2) No, not all projects need to achieve the same level of precertification that the Prototype does. The Prototype should theoretically represent the maximum certification level for a given project (a menu of available credits), but individual projects don’t have to use all the available credits if they don’t apply.
Thanks, hope that helps!
