Why LEED Certification Matters For Your Next Building Project

October 6, 2017

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) assists builders and general contractors to become more environmentally conscious with their buildings and the surrounding communities.  Find out what LEED certification requires and how it will benefit you in the long run!

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.
