What is a LEED Certification?

 

Kelly Gale of KLG Architecture is a LEED AP BD+C
The LEED AP Building Design + Construction denotes professionals participating in the design and construction phases of high-performance, healthful, durable, affordable, and environmentally sound commercial, institutional, and high-rise residential buildings.
Credential maintenance requirements:
LEED APs must maintain their credential by earning 30 continuing education (CE) hours every two-year reporting period
WHY Certify your project with LEED:
Certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building measures. LEED certification is the internationally recognized distinction that a building is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.
There are both environmental and financial benefits to earning LEED certification, including:
Lowering operating costs and increasing asset value.
Reducing waste sent to landfills.
Conserving energy and water.
Developing healthier and safer buildings for occupants.
Creating compact and walkable communities with good access to neighborhood amenities and transit
Protecting natural resources and farmland by encouraging growth to be located in areas with existing infrastructure.
Reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
Qualifying for tax rebates, zoning allowances, and other incentives in hundreds of cities.
Demonstrating an owner's commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
Sustainable building strategies should be considered early in the development cycle. An integrated project team will include the major project stakeholders such as the developer/owner, architect, engineer, landscape architect, contractor, and asset and property management staff. Implementing an integrated, systems-oriented approach to green project design, development, and operations can yield synergies and improve the overall performance of a building. An initial LEED assessment will bring the project team together to evaluate and articulate the project's goals and the level of certification sought. Project teams can utilize the resources listed below to identify suitable strategies to achieve desired certification goals.
