LEED / Green Building
The concept of green building design balances environmental responsibility, resource efficiencies, occupant comfort and well-being, community development and the economics of building construction and operation. It includes an integrated development process, from the design team (building owners, architects, engineers and consultants), the construction team (materials manufacturers, contractors, waste managers) to the maintenance staff and building occupants a process that maximizes the owner’s return on investment.
