LEED is the acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, signifying a green building rating system designed to evaluate projects and award them certification based on their performance. According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED has become the “nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.” Contractors, architects, designers & engineers are turning to LEED for standards in building green and reaching for the official LEED AP Interior Design & Construction certification credential. Now, John Wiley & Sons, a leading publisher for architecture references & certification guides, is releasing GUIDE TO THE LEED AP INTERIOR DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION (ID+C) EXAM (February 2012; $75.00) to help professionals understand the LEED rating system, and prepare candidates for the LEED AP ID+C exam.
