LEED is about Leadership in Efficiency
LEED is an acronym for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.” A LEED certified building means construction incorporates very energy-efficient building materials and systems resulting in a reduced carbon footprint with minimal impact on the environment. Meeting the strict requirements for certification takes careful planning of the building materials selection process as well as strong knowledge of the inefficiencies of key mechanical systems to be installed as part of the infrastructure to the building. Above all, it take an appreciation for the environment and a commitment to sustainability.
Russell Construction Services is proud of the relationship we have with VSECU and GMP and we appreciate their commitment to sustainability.
