LEED prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project. LEED is available for both new construction and existing buildings and for all building types ranging from commercial office spaces, retail, warehouses, data centers, health facilities, interior fit-outs, core & shell development, as well as homes, communities and entire neighborhoods.
The Benefits of the LEED certified building are:
- Proven performance: LEED saves money and energy, reduces water consumption, improves indoor air quality, facilitates better product & material choices, and drives innovation.
- Continuous improvement: Behind the LEED program is an immense infrastructure developed to support the leaders in the industry as they innovate and create cutting-edge, high performance buildings. We make significant investments each year to maintain, operate and improve LEED and its delivery.
- Lifetime of returns: LEED-certified buildings cost less to operate, reducing energy and water bills by as much as 40%. Businesses and organizations across the globe use LEED to increase the efficiency of their buildings, freeing up valuable resources that can be used to create new jobs, attract and retain top talent, expand operations and invest in emerging technologies.
