LEED Certification & Consultation
LEED, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Has become the most recognized body for Green Building Certification in the world.
Launched by the U.S. Green Building Council in 1998 and officially released in 1999, LEED is constantly evolving as new technologies emerge.
The LEED for Homes rating system offers 136 possible points in several different credit categories for acquisition towards certification in one of four levels-
- LEED Certified, 45-59 points
- LEED Silver, 60-74 points
- LEED Gold, 75-89 points
- and LEED Platinum, 90 points and above.
LEED Certified Buildings are not only more energy efficient, but they exceed normal building standards in areas like indoor environmental quality, water efficiency, Waste reduction, and environmentally friendly materials. At the same time adding value to your home, creating a healthier indoor living environment, and promoting social and environmental responsibility.
As a LEED Accredited Professional, I’m able guide you through the process. There are choices to be made in the design phase regarding the preliminary rating and which credits are most feasible to pursue based on your project specific characteristics and goals.
There might also be tax incentives, (based on region), and rebates offered by government and utility companies for meeting certain criteria. Some municipalities offer opportunities for plan check fee reduction and expedited plan check.
Call us today and we’ll set up a meeting for a preliminary project evaluation.
There's never been a better time to build!
