Why Build to LEED Standards
What is LEED?
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design or (“LEED”) is a rating system developed by the United States Green Building Council (“USGBC”). LEED helped us make 81 Brent efficient and healthy.
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification program, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance, increasing energy savings, water efficiency, and carbon emissions reduction, stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts, and improving indoor environmental quality.
Using the green building tool and third-party verification process 81 Brent reached the highest level on the rating scale. LEED Platinum
