LEED Building-The Industry Standard in Environmentally-Friendly Building Certification

Leed/Green Building

Green building is one of the fastest-growing segments of the construction and building maintenance industry, offering a host of both environmental and financial advantages. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the industry standard for green building. Simply put, LEED is a comprehensive program that addresses a building through its entire life cycle, from design and construction to operation and maintenance.  Developers and owners earn points based on their use of approved green building supplies and techniques. These points lead to ratings that both recognize the building’s green design and can qualify owners and developers for financial incentives ranging from tax rebates to zoning allowances. 
Benefits of LEED
  • Reduce operating costs while increasing property value.
  • Reduce consumption of energy and water.
  • Qualify for financial incentives such as tax rebates.

Because LEED is a comprehensive green-development program, a wide variety of building and maintenance projects, including construction and landscaping jobs, fall within its ambit. The LEED program includes a variety of categories applicable to different building and maintenance jobs. Each category then contains prerequisites, or requirements that must be met for LEED certification in the category, and credits, or optional elements that earn points for LEED certification. Upon completion of a project, third-party auditors verify the site’s compliance with the strategies that will ultimately give it LEED certification.
