Set a Standard in Your Community
The U.S. Green Building Council established the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building program in 1998 as a system for rating construction projects based on their environmental sustainability. LEED is now the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. Projects intended to receive LEED certification are awarded points in several areas of environmental stewardship. LEED certification is divided into four levels (Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum), according to the number of LEED points earned.
Depending on the scope of your project, Metro Ready Mix’s LEED mix designs could contribute between two and four LEED points to the overall project. Achieving a higher level may help you get recognition for dedication to environmental issues in your community, organization, and industry. You may also receive potential state and local government incentives as well as third-party validation for your achievement.
