LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and it is the internationally recognized mark of excellence in green building. LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. The administering agency is the United States Green Building Council.
LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Bright Energy Services, with LEED Accredited Professionals and Green Associates on staff, manages projects to help facility owners and managers gain the independent, third party, LEED certification for their new construction, renovation, and existing building projects.
Our LEED consulting service supports our client’s goals and allows their team to focus on the project at hand. Bright Energy Services works closely with the project team and provides assistance as needed to research and implement LEED prerequisites and points. Individual members of the project team are usually focused on designing, constructing, or operating the building. Bright Energy Services supplements their expertise by comparing similar projects, researching relevant topics and discovering LEED credit interpretations. With Bright Energy Services managing the LEED requirements, design changes and operational protocols can be completed at the lowest possible cost. This strategy allows the project team to focus their attention exclusively on the details where their expertise is needed.
