Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification has shaped the way that the construction industry thinks about facility design, construction and maintenance. By choosing to develop a LEED certified facility, you make a commitment to your community, the environment, the health of your employees and your company's bottom line. Having your facility green building certified recognizes that you have chosen to implement best practices to develop the highest performing facility you can.
We have many years of experience in designing LEED certified facilities and we were part of the design team that developed the first LEED Platinum facility in Charlotte, NC under New Construction. We have a thorough understanding of the LEED accreditation system and we can walk you through the MEP design criteria. If you choose to attempt LEED certification, we can help you determine whether a certified, silver, gold or platinum level makes sense.
LEED has a tangible and measurable impact to your financial bottom line in the form of energy savings but LEED provides much more than that. When implementing reduced energy strategies such as daylight harvesting, lighting controls and shade controls, you also improve the quality of life for the building occupants. This will often have a positive impact to your bottom line and more importantly, your employee satisfaction. A LEED facility is a sustainable commitment for your building and your team.
