LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.
When designing and constructing a new building project, project teams are left with a choice: the option to build an innovative green building from the ground-up, or maintain the status quo by creating a water-guzzling, energy-wasting traditional structure. We’re in favor of the former. LEED for Building Design and Construction (LEED BD+C) provides a framework for building a holistic green building, giving you the chance to nail down every sustainability feature, maximizing the benefits.
By following the U.S. Green Building Council’s requirements and guidelines, we help customers meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification requirements. Your organization’s project can be better positioned for LEED Certification by using recycled products instead of natural aggregate.
