LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) has quickly become the global standard for rating the energy efficiency of a building.The benefits of incorporating LEED building techniques into your facility include:
- Lowered operating costs – LEED buildings use less energy.
- Sustainability – Less waste generation means a healthier planet.
- Higher value and perception – A LEED-certified building is more attractive to tenants and may even boost employee morale.
How Riley Can Help
As a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and constructor of several major LEED-certified projects, Riley takes the time to think outside of the box when it comes to green and sustainable construction.
As active participants on the environmentally-friendly construction front, our project management staff are all required to earn LEED Accredited Professional status through the USGBC and incorporate sustainability initiatives in each of the projects – LEED-bound or not. Our staff are actively engaged in the green building world, including one of our team members earning the prestigious appointment to the University of Wisconsin System Sustainability Degree Advisory Board.
With Riley Construction as your partner, we can help you find ways to earn LEED credits without extra costs. We are also experienced with identifying ways to offset certain expenses to gain savings in other areas and align opportunities from the design to the built environment to help you achieve your LEED certification and/or green building goals.
