LEED Capabilities

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design is a third-party certification programme developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED has become a driving force behind the way the construction industry designs, builds, maintains and operates buildings and communities across the world. It is an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. It provides building owners and operators with the means to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ overall performance.

The LEED Green Building Rating System supports the global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria. LEED is behind the delivery of energy and water efficient, healthy, environmentally-friendly, cost effective buildings and communities. LEED enables corporations to save money, conserve energy, reduce water consumption, improve indoor air quality and make better choices when it comes to building materials. This is just another step towards the future of the construction industry where the conservation and care of the environment is equally as important as the finished product – and the means to achieve both are no longer an aspiration, it is a reality.
