I am currently working on a university project which requires Green Building Initive's Green Globe Rating System or USGBC LEED Rating System. The Design Team wishes to use Green Globe.

I have done my research for Green Globe.

Also, I have used the LEED rating system before on several projects, but never Green Globe. So, I have a couple questions for all of you in 4spec.com land.

Question No. 1: Has anyone used it yet?

Question No. 2: What are the monumental differences between the two rating systems, mainly dealing with bidding and contract documentation, does it differ from the LEED front end at all?

Thanks so much for your time.
