LEED Online

I unfortunately am having trouble with the LEED submission process. I have
a project that has had its initial Design Review completed and the team
would like to submit our responses to the review. Other than making
changes to the credits/templates, where can we submit a
written narrative response to the review? I have search LEED online, GBCI
and other online sites for answers unsuccessfully, they do have some great,
user-friendly websites. I tried to avoid writing to the Bldg-sim list for
something like this, but i know people out there will have the answer.

Thanks in advance,

What I have done in the past is to make a document, usually a pdf, of my
responses as a narrative, for each comment. Revise the template and the
submittals, but in the narrative pdf, say what you did and why you did
it. Call the narrative "response to comment XXX" or something and
upload it to the credit section along with the new template, submitals,
etc. I have found that more documentation is more likely to be approved.

I have also done that in the past, but the template I am working on (IEQp1
in particular) has not allowable uploads on the website, so there is no
place for me to attach a PDF document or other information.

Thanks for the response.

Rob,

If you have elected to use the form to show your VRP calculations, I believe
the access to the document upload section in LEED online may be accessed by
indicating that an alternate compliance path is being used. This should open
a narrative box in which you should note that you are NOT using an alternate
compliance path, just using this method to enable uploading documents. Hope
this helps!

That's surprising. I just looked at an old project, and IEQp1 allows
uploads, or at least it did before it was certified.

It has "other documents" right on the bottom for miscellaneous uploads,
and I have one on there called
"IAQ-Prereq-1Technical-Advice-Response.pdf" that I prepared and
uploaded. I have no idea why yours won't allow it.
