What Is LEED For Homes?

The LEED For Homes rating system category is designed to certify single-family and multifamily homes that are between one and eight stories. Residential buildings over eight stories should use the LEED BD+C: New Construction and Major Renovation rating system.

The two rating systems under this category are the only rating systems that require in-field verification. This means that a Green Rater is going to conduct a site visit to verify that the home is designed and built to the rating system’s requirements.

1) LEED BD+C: Homes and Multifamily Low-Rise

For single-family homes and multifamily residential buildings that are one to three stories.

2) LEED BD+C: Multifamily Mid-Rise

For multifamily residential buildings with four to eight stories above grade. Residential buildings with nine stories or more should use the LEED BD+C: New Construction and Major Renovation rating system.
