AEP Span completed a comprehensive assessment of how our products contribute toward projects designed to meet USGBC’s LEED v4 and 4.1 rating systems. It is important to note that project teams currently pursuing LEED v4 may have the opportunity to apply the LEED v4.1 credits and prerequisites in place of the LEED v4 language, allowing teams to take advantage of credits that may be more accessible for their project.
