Congratulations to our design assistants, Jessica Rubinski and Nicole Fransen for receiving their LEED AP accreditation.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is an internationally recognized green building certification system, established by the U.S. Green Building Council, that provides third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all areas including: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their earthly impacts.
The LEED Accredited Professional Exam (LEED AP) is a test administered by the Green Building Certification Institute, a division of the U.S. Green Building Council and was created to recognize those individuals that have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED Green Building Rating System and the certification process. A LEED AP is recognized as an expert in the field of sustainable design.
