Italpac is a proud partner of projects incorporating the US Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. The USGBC leads an unlikely diverse constituency of builders and environmentalists, corporations and non-profit organizations, elected officials and concerned citizens all striving to provide a sustainable future for our nation through cost efficient and energy saving green buildings. Contact us if you need a LEED strategy for your project.
The LEED certification process uses a point system to determine the environmental merits of a building; there are different rating systems for homes, commercial buildings, interior renovations, schools, neighborhood developments, and other construction projects.
For most projects, there are four levels of LEED certification, depending on how many points the project has earned: certified, silver, gold or platinum. According to the USGBC, there are nine key areas.
Who Uses LEED
Diverse professionals, including architects, real estate professionals, facility managers, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, lenders and government officials all use LEED to help transform the built environment to sustainability.
State and local governments across the country are adopting LEED for public-owned and public-funded buildings.
Federal agencies, including the Departments of Defense, Agriculture, Energy, and State, have LEED initiatives.
LEED projects are in progress in 41 different countries – among these Canada, Brazil, Mexico and India.
Imagine a city skyline where all buildings are the same size, shape and color…where the only tourist attraction is the overwhelmingly one dimensional nature of the architecture. A company built on sameness is as inspiring to clients and potential employees as a city of one dimension…
