17 critical—and misunderstood—LEED terms:

LEED rating systems (as of LEED 2009): LEED certification can apply to a whole building, whether new or existing, with different versions of the rating system applying to new construction and major renovations (LEED for New Construction, or LEED-NC), or operations and maintenance (LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance). Certification can also apply to tenant improvements using the LEED for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) rating system, even if they don’t encompass an entire building. Entire neighborhoods can also be certified under LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND). Certain specific building types are addressed through rating systems such as LEED for Healthcare and LEED for Schools, which are modified versions of the more generic LEED-NC.
