Our office has been using Revit for a few years and continually find new uses for the information it can generate. We are coming across more and more opportunities to do LEED projects, and it appears the demand for LEED certification is increasing rapidly. Has anyone done any work with LEED projects in Revit, and how well does Revit integrate with the LEED certification process? We are still rank newbies in the LEED process, but we are looking down the road at how we can maximize the tools we have. Thanks for the insights. Mike Wiseman

This file can then be uploaded to Green Building Systems to aid in generating LEEDS reports. Or if you were savvy enough, you could write a tool that would parse the gbXML format and generate your own custom reports. Look here: http://207.97.194.107/downloads/revit_gbs_tutorial.pdf Jeffrey
