What is a LEED Certification?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a certification that is available worldwide for commercial buildings, residences, and civic-plan neighborhoods. This certification is bestowed upon projects that follow the environmentally friendly design and energy practices put in place by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). At HB McClure, we have been working together with owners to help them maintain their heating and cooling systems in the most efficient manner possible.
The ABCs of LEED Certification
There are different types of certification, depending on the use of your building:
- Healthcare / Hospital
Which LEED Designation is the Right One for You Project?
There are also designations for new build and renovation projects. In many cases, the LEED certification has the greatest impact on the ongoing management and maintenance of the building. A partnership with HB McClure for the management of your building is an effective way for you to remain in compliance of your LEED certification without having to get bogged down in all of the details of the guidelines.
We can help you to maintain your certification at its present level or help you to achieve a higher level of certification. Presently, the certification is available to those that meet the guidelines for Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. These guidelines are put in place to benefit both the environment and the lives of the people inhabiting or working in the building. The higher your LEED score, the lower your overall environmental impact.
