LEED Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design

Green Building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle.

From job site selection to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction, there are ways to make new or existing construction green. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building.

Sustainable, reclamation, recycling, and environmental stewardship are new terms that we hear daily. Environmental awareness can transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.
