Within the notes to this LEED gives specifics on 'previously developed areas',
but I have not come across what there definition of 'graded sites' is.
A current project has a natural grade on the site and roadways/pathways extend through the site. To enable these to be built safely the initial construction width will be nearly twice the finished width (due to building up the path on one side). This means we will not qualify for case 1.
Has LEED taken these issues into consideration by giving case 2 as an option or am i misunderstanding what they mean as 'graded sites'.
