Leadership in Energy And Environmental Design

Leed Logos

LEED is an internationally recognized certification system that measures how well a building or community performs across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), [We do not need a
link here] LEED provides building owners and operators a concise
framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable
green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as
well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and
construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fit-out, and significant
retrofit. Interstate Brick has several LEED APs on our team that understand the certification system and design principles. We maintain current documentation to assist you in the process.
