LEED assessment

LEED certification offer your building project independent, third-party verification that ensures your project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All projects certified under LEED receive a plaque to recognise that the development demonstrates  environmentally responsibility and is a healthy place to live and work.

LEED certification also offers your development a range of both environmental and financial benefits.

Background to LEED

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ has been developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). Drawing inspiration from the UK-based equivalent BREEAM scheme, LEED officially launched in 1998 in the US.

LEED assesses buildings against the following 6 categories of environmental and sustainability issues:

  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy & Atmosphere
  •  Materials & Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

Each issue covered by LEED certification has one or more ‘credits’ available when specific levels of performance or process are achieved. In addition, some pre-requisite credits are mandatory for all levels of LEED certification.

Characterized by two distinct phases, the Design Phase Review and the Construction Phase Review, LEED certificates are only granted by the USGBC at end of construction.

LEED is a voluntary sustainability evaluation methodology and covers all types of buildings: Offices, retail, homes, residential high-rise, public buildings, commercial interiors, etc. Different customized adaptations of the scheme are available for various building types, as well as major renovations and minor refurbishments.

Planning for LEED certification early in the development process helps avoid potentially expensive additional service requests from design consultants and contractor change notices during project delivery.

This is why we strongly recommend engaging a Syntegra Group LEED Accredited Design Professional in your green building project to ensure the effectiveness of design, construction and delivery.
