Are you a builder who wants to make an impact on the world? If so, consider LEED Certification for your next project. With 1.85 million square feet of construction space certified each day, this is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a program focused primarily on new, commercial-building projects. This certification uses a points system. The more points you earn on the grading scale, the higher you’ll rate.
The main benefit of certification is the environmental boost. LEED-certified buildings are also energy- and water-efficient. Compared to conventional buildings, they have higher rental rates, are healthier and safer for occupants and represent the values of the organization.
