SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainable design and construction practices are widely discussed and increasingly incorporated into projects. The United States Green Building Council provides a framework for sustainability through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), green building certification system. Projects can be designed with LEED design and/or construction principles or selected principles. Or, projects can include LEED criteria and choose to have the project registered and validated for one of four ratings per LEED v3.3:

Certified
Silver
