Green Buildings are not just the
next big thing. They are the only
option we have.
India is the second largest green building market in the world
The market size including materials and services is expected to touch
$100 billion by the year 2015
Many infrastructure analysts believe that over 60% of the country is
yet to be built
Our longages in demand for resources need to be controlled urgently
and green building is the most viable solution
Green buildings are easy to design, build, operate and the do not cost

LEED India NC Overview
and Process
The LEED India Green Building Rating System for New Commercial Construction
and Major Renovation (LEED India NC) provides a set of performance standards
for certifying the design and construction phases of commercial, institutional
buildings and high-rise residential buildings. The specific credits in the rating
system provide guidelines for the design and construction of buildings of all sizes
in both the public and private sectors. The intent of LEED India NC is to assist in
the creation of high performance, healthful, durable, affordable and
environmentally sound commercial and institutional buildings.

WHEN TO USE LEED INDIA
NC
LEED India NC is designed primarily for new commercial office buildings, but
it can be applied to many other building types by LEED practitioners. All
commercial buildings, as defined by standard building codes are eligible for
certification as a LEED India NC Building. Commercial occupancies include
(but are not limited to) offices, retail and service establishments,
institutional buildings (libraries, schools, museums, churches, etc.,) and
hotels.
LEED India NC addresses design and construction activities for both new
buildings and major renovations of existing buildings. As a general rule-of
thumb, a major renovation involves elements of major HVAC renovation,
significant envelope modifications and major interior rehabilitation.

The IGBC over a period of time, would also release other rating programs
like LEED EB (Existing Buildings), IGBC Green Homes, IGBC Green Factory
rating system, etc. Many projects will cleanly and clearly fit the defined
scope of only one LEED Rating System product. Other projects may be
applicable to two or more LEED Rating System product scopes. IGBC
encourages the project team to tally a potential point total using the Rating
System checklists for all possibilities. The project is a viable candidate for
LEED certification if it can meet all prerequisites and achieve the minimum
points required in a given Rating System. If more than one Rating System
PRATEEK BANDYOPADHYAY YASHA SHARAN A RAGHUNANDAN VEENA NAMBOODIRI TEMJEN NOCHET
applies, then it is up to the project team to decide which one to pursue.

REGISTRATION
Project teams interested in obtaining LEED India NC Certification for their project must first register this
intent with the IGBC. Projects can be registered on the IGBC website (www.igbc.in) under ‘Register Your
Project’. The website includes information on registration costs for IGBC member companies as well as non-
members.

Registration is an important step that establishes contact with the IGBC and provides access to software
tools, errata, critical communications and other essential information

Credit Interpretation
Rulings
Consult the Reference Guide for a detailed description of the credit intent, requirements and
calculations

Review the intent of the credit or prerequisite in question to self-evaluate whether the project
meets this intent

Review the Credit Interpretation (CIR) Web page for previously logged CIRs on relevant credits. All,
LEED India registered project contacts have access to this page

If a similar credit interpretation has not been logged, or does not answer the question sufficiently,
submit a credit interpretation request. The CIR should be succinct and based on information found
in the Reference Guide, with emphasis on the intent of the prerequisite or credit. Only registered
