Accreditations

U.S. Green Building Council

The U.S. Green Building Council was formed in 1993 with the goal of promoting sustainability in the building and construction industry. LEED is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)

The LEED Building Design and Construction professional accreditation includes a further specialization, the LEED for New Construction. This rating system applies to all new buildings so they are built in accordance to strict environmentally friendly and occupant safe guidelines. The LEED AP NC credential grants the individual a wide breadth of environmentally responsible construction techniques, such as increased waste diversion.

AWARDED TO: Oscar Vargas, Mark Maxwell, Lois Good, Elise Parker, DuWayne Baird, Michael Kuk

The understanding of a LEED Accredited Professional goes beyond the basics of building systems to hone in on a particular field of expertise. The LEED AP Operations and Maintenance designation implies an advanced knowledge of resource efficiency, building operations, and sustainable strategies.
