LEED-ership in Sustainability
The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a compilation of prerequisites and credits that addresses sustainability as it relates to the natural environment and the human occupant. This third party point-based system combines criteria for site selection, water and energy efficiency, resource reuse, material selection, and indoor environmental quality into an organized format that can be applied to a variety of different building types and design projects.

Because not every credit in the program must be met to achieve certification, LEED can easily be tailored to meet your project’s unique building type, location, and sustainability goals. Our design team can help you meet the lighting, daylighting, and controls system requirements of the LEED program while expertly integrating those solutions with the needs of the building’s users and the overall architectural intent. Your project’s successful LEED certification will serve as a benchmark by which others may judge your organization’s integration of and commitment to sustainability.
