Importance of LEED Certification
There are quite a few benefits to having your project LEED certified. The major benefit is saving money. With less water and energy used through the building, the costs of running the building will be lessened. Also, as an added bonus, be sure to check to see if your state government offers any tax credits for going green!
On top of saving money, you are also providing a healthier environment for your community, which people admire. LEED has become a competitive differentiator by allowing companies to increase their sustainability, which has shown to increase the overall financial performance of a business.
Creating a healthy environment within your building is key - whether you are looking to build an office building or rental properties. LEED certified buildings provide a healthier space void of harmful chemicals found in paint and finishings, as well as attract more people to these spaces, such as new employees or tenants who have an interest in sustainability and cost-effective living.
