GSA Issues Review of New LEED Certification System Version; Kevin Kampschroer Comments

1 min read

GSAThe General Services Administration has issued a review of the fourth version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification system.

GSA made the assessment to see how the new iteration complies with existing federal statutory, regulatory and executive order green building standards, the agency said Wednesday.

“GSA’s review of LEED v4 is the first in a series of steps the agency will take to determine if this system can help government agencies meet federal green building requirements,” said Kevin Kampschroer, director of GSA’s Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings.

“Final recommendation on LEED v4 will be made after GSA receives input from stakeholders in and outside of government,” Kampschroer added.

GSA also plans to form a discussion group consisting of various agencies to examine LEED v4 and release its findings for a 30-day public comment period.

The agency has a mandate to examine existing green building certification systems every five years under the Energy Independence and Security Act.
