LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a third-party certification program aimed at the construction and operation of high operation green buildings. At Windemuller, we have a number of LEED certified experts on our staff and are constantly seeking to make our projects as environmentally friendly as possible.
How it Works
LEED projects fall into one of four certification levels: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, and levels are determined by the number of points attained by the project. There are 100 possible base points distributed across five major credit categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, plus an additional six points for Innovation in Design and another four points for Regional Priority. LEED certified buildings are intended to use resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings simply built to code. LEED certified buildings often provide healthier work and living environments, which then contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort.
