LEED Certification Buildings

The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally recognized benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. LEED certification signifies that a building is environmentally responsible and a healthy place to live and work.

The LEED program gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on sustainability. The impact affects five key areas of human and environmental health:

  • Sustainable site development
  • Water savings
  • Energy efficiency
  • Materials selection
  • Quality of the indoor environment
