What we do best

LEED Certification

 

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.

We specialize in the most up-to-date leed system, version 4.1

We Can Do it All

LEED takes a full building approach to sustainability, evalutaing how green a building is through nine holistic categories that incentive maximizing sustainbiliy features to benefit tenants.

The latest version of LEED, LEED v4.1, raises the bar on these building standards to address energy efficiency, water conservation, site selection, material selection, day lighting, waste reduction and we are well versed and have experience offering the latest LEED services to clients!

Location and Transportation

Rewards thoughtful decisions about building location, with credits that encourage compact development, alternative transportation, and connection with amenities, such as restaurants and parks.

Water efficiency

Addresses water holistically, looking at indoor use, outdoor use, specialized uses, and metering. As a result, the credit category looks at water efficiency and reductions in potable water use alone.

Energy and Atmosphere

Approaches energy from a holistic perspective, addressing energy use reduction, energy-efficient design strategies, and renewable energy sources. This category recognizes that the reduction of fossil fuel use extends far beyond the walls of the building. Projects can use strategies such as enrolling in a demand response program to fulfill this category.

Indoor Air Quality

Rewards decisions made by project teams about indoor air quality and thermal, visual, and acoustic comfort. Green buildings with good indoor environmental quality protect the health and comfort of building occupants.

Materails and Resources

Focuses on minimizing the embodied energy and other aspects associated with the extraction, processing, transport, maintenance, and disposal of building materials.
