Definition - What does LEED AP Building Design + Construction (LEED AP BD+C) mean?

The LEED AP Building Design + Construction certification covers plans involving the design and building phases of buildings that are to meet green standards.

A person who is certified for this part of LEED planning can be certified for doing so based on one’s knowledge of the following points for handling construction:
  • Determining the appropriate location based on proximity to public transit, its lack of impact on a habitat and more
  • Preparing green resources that are made to support construction without impacting the environment
  • Figuring out how energy and water will be used responsibly
  • Planning all items in accordance with local building codes

Testopedia explains LEED AP Building Design + Construction (LEED AP BD+C)

People who have received this LEED AP certification will be trained to handle solutions dedicated to improving all parts of a building’s design. It may involve working with building reuse plans to convert on existing construction property into a new one or simply acquiring quickly renewable materials for construction like bamboo wood, wool and cork.

Much of this also entails designing the physical aspects of a building with regards to controlling the flow of air, sunlight and water in an area. This includes seeing that water can be collected and reused in an area as needed or that an appropriate series of windblocking items may be used to prevent wind from cooling off a building and therefore causing a heating plan to work
