A person seeking to achieve certification for an energy-efficient structure under a particular green building rating system, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System should delegate to a qualified member of the project team the responsibility for assembling, reviewing and managing all required documents and obtaining certification at the desired rating level, as specified in the project manual for the proposed structure.  The architect is often the best person to carry out these tasks provided that the architect is accredited under the green building rating system selected by project owner.
