JoAnn and Mark,
The Green Rater locator is available here.
- It looks like there are several raters and companies that serve Connecticut.
- LEED for Homes has requirements starting early in the project cycle so you should discuss the project with a Green Rater as early as possible.
If you haven't already, you can also use the Green Scoring Tool to get an idea of the requirements and how your home might score. It's available at www.leedforhomes.org.
When contacting a rater they'll likely want to know the following information to put together a proposal:
- Estimated total home square footage (including basement), and architectural plans if they're available
- LEED Homes goals including certification level and sustainability goals
- Number of mechanical systems
- If you want any additional certifications such as ENERGY STAR for New Homes (version 3) or Indoor airPLUS
- Project location
- Construction schedule
Good luck with your project!
