LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
One of our recent initiatives is to build with sustainability in mind.
As a contributor to the future infrastructure of our communities, we feel it is our duty to minimize unnecessary harm and waste.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is redefining the way we think about the places where we live, work and learn. As an internationally recognized mark of excellence, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED is transforming the way environments are designed, constructed, and operated - from individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED works throughout a building’s life cycle.
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.
McGillivray Construction has built multiple LEED-certified buildings. We are currently in the process of re-building a school campus and completing a LEED design that will make the campus 100% self-sufficient. It is our hope that one day all building construction can be LEED-approved.
