The Same Reputation. A New Identity.

Within the past decade, green building certification programs and sustainable design practices have become decidedly mainstream. Today’s architects and their clients demand not only greater transparency but also easily accessible resources to help them design more sustainable buildings and meet sustainable design benchmarks such as those outlined by the LEED® v4 rating system.
Established by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) in 1998, the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is a premier benchmark for sustainable design.
