Process And Cost Information: 

LEED EBOM has minimum program requirements including a project size, so check compliance before registering the project. Once registered, submit all required documentation.

GBCI will conduct a preliminary review, and if project teams are not satisfied with the results they can update their application and have a final review done. For more feedback through the process, there is an option for a pre-certification review. Project teams can pay for expedited review as well. 

There is a flat registration fee, and certification fees are per square foot. If project choose to have a pre-certification, there a flat fee associated. Expedited review has a flat fee as well. Silver, gold, and platinum level members receive discounted pricing.
