LEED® Certification

Optimized Energy has experience providing LEED® certification support for many of our clients, and we are always up-to-date with the latest developments in LEED® design.

LEED® is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED® provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED® is flexible enough to apply to all building types commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant improvements, and significant retrofit. And LEED® for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED® beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.
