LEED POINTS

 

LEED points are awarded by the non-profit organization U.S. Green Building Council to certify that a building is environmentally sustainable and meets various environmental standards set by the USGBC. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED points give a structure environmental credibility and are used by architects, engineers, developers and builders as well as government and non-profit organizations.

LEED emphasizes sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency,

materials and resource selection and indoor environmental quality. The USGBC certifies sustainable businesses, homes, hospitals, schools and neighborhoods.

All phases of development and construction are rated with LEED points. This voluntary rating system helps improve better building integration practices and raises environmental awareness. This rating system also recognizes environmental leaders in the building industry. Ultimately, LEED points promote cleaner, safer living and working spaces.Since various factors affect different environments, we encourage you to talk with your architect about LEED points.

The benefits of LEED certification include:

lower operating costs

increased asset value

reduction of environmental pollution

conservation of natural resources

qualification for tax rebates and other incentives

demonstration of owner's commitment to a safer, cleaner environment
