“What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on.”    –    Henry David Thoreau

As climate change continues to rise as a growing concern, many builders are choosing to implement sustainable alternatives to offset its effects. Under the U.S. Green Building Council, companies are subject to green building standards that every project must meet. Once a project meets the set of prerequisites under the certification program, the company may qualify as a LEED contractor.

LEED Certification

LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED is an independent green building certification program which is globally recognized for its construction of high-performance green buildings. The overall focus is on material development, energy consumption, water usage and health conditions which are designed to make green building more viable.

Revitalization through Sustainability

LEED is known for many added benefits; however, it’s notable attributes are its higher resale value and healthier indoor space. Substantiality in design has impacted and revitalized many diverse projects such as the restoration of an old building to new multi-use office buildings.  Not to mention, LEED is one of the most difficult yet extensive certification programs to obtain in the green building market.

The push towards sustainable design, in an increasing real estate market, has inspired the creation of the LEED certification. The certification has become the standard in an evolving market that ensure buildings are offering environmental benefits.
