India and LEED: Approaches for LEED v4 BD+C Projects

Custom-built support for LEEDuser members

LEEDuser tip sheets, written by our team of LEED experts, fill gaps in knowledge we’ve observed between the LEED Reference Guide, LEED Online, and LEED Interpretations. We update them regularly so that our members get the most relevant guidance for current issues on their projects.

LEED v4-certified projects in India are gradually increasing. While some requirements in LEED v4 are challenging to comply with in the Indian context, there are a few others that are particularly easy. The following points summarize many high-level approaches for a new construction project.

Location and Transportation

Parking requirements as per local by-laws are commonly higher for typical office buildings in most locations. Hence reducing parking requirements from the LEED baseline is challenging.
