Why should you consider
Because LEED certification employs sustainable construction methods. This process minimizes the impact on the existing
environment by utilizing our limited natural resources in a responsible manner. It provides a healthier and more productive work place for your employees and also reduces operating costs for
the life of the facility.
Seeking LEED certification for your project — whether ground-up or an existing renovation — requires an integrated approach among all team members. It is a collaborative effort among the Owner, Architect, Engineer, Contractor, Subcontractors and Vendors. When selecting team members, you should require that they be LEED Professionals™ and have experience working on LEED certified projects.

How has LEED Accreditation Changed?
Changes in the LEED rating systems appearing in the new LEED version 3 guidelines, released in April of 2009, include a strong emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate change issues, along with reducing fossil fuel and resource depletion. Indoor environmental quality has a greater focus than the previous LEED version. This is in response to the amount of time a typical American currently spends indoors — which is often over 90 percent. These areas of increased focus are demonstrated through three major differences in this newest version. To learn more about the latest Version 3 changes click here.
