LEED Green Rating System


WHAT'S YOUR VISION?

Every Project team has a vision for building performance. We expect our homes and buildings to be energy efficient, durable and low maintenance, sensitive to the environment, and especially safe and healthy. Is just meeting code good enough for your project? Or, is your vision set higher? Contects and the LEED Green Rating System can help you define, communicate, deliver, and measure a higher vision of building performance.

LEED—Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—is a voluntary, consensus-based, market­-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings and is an excellent way to communicate your vision to the project team and marketplace. From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED addresses the entire lifecycle of a building.

LEED provides building owners and operators the tools they need to immediately impact their building’s performance and bottom line, while providing healthy indoor spaces for a building’s occupants. An organization's participation in the voluntary LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
