LEED coach sessions for registered projects

This critical service is available to any registered project team. With direct access to a member of the CaGBC LEED team, your coach can lead you through the process and become your dedicated point of contact for any questions you have about the process along the way. If you haven’t met your coach yet, let us know and we’ll connect you. For extremely complex projects, there’s an Enhanced Service Package ($500) which includes five hours of dedicated guidance scheduled according to your needs.

Identify and source products that can contribute to your LEED projects
