Performance and Traditional Path
we need some clarification about intention behind Arc program. The performance score generated through Arc platform doesn't represent substitution for LEED project certification level, and is not replacement for initial certification. The intention behind is that Project LEED O+M:EB pursue traditional path, then enter into Arc platform.
The O+M performance path nevertheless requires for Projects to achieve all prerequisites from traditional LEED O+M:EB and to submit that documentation to GBCI. That would count in performance path for starting points.
