LEED Professional Accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED certification process. Our LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and
principles and the LEED Rating System. They are responsible for preparing the waste management and tracking plan, construction indoor air quality plan, and all appropriate LEED submission materials. During construction, they participate in LEED focused meetings to ensure proper, effective communication which bring progress updates and discussions on potential innovations and opportunities for further LEED credits; a crucial activity to the value-added service we provide in the LEED certification process. Finally, they compile all materials required from all subcontractors and tailor it to LEED submission standards.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All certified projects receive a LEED plaque, which is the nationally-recognized symbol demonstrating that a building is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.
