Our knowledge and experience become significant advantage as you are striving to acquire a LEED certification for your project. LEED Standard (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the world’s leading standards in the green construction sector.
The standard was first launched in the United States in 1998 by the USGBC (Green Building Council US).
Since then the standard has gained international recognition, and has been applied worldwide. In Israel, a number of buildings have already been awarded the LEED regulation and many others are in the process of being certified. Among the projects that won the certification is the Citibank project carried out by Yaniv Engineering.
Buildings built under green construction in accordance with the LEED standard are healthier buildings for the environment and their tenants. They provide high indoor air quality, use of local and renewable raw materials, water and energy savings facilities and more. Last but not least is a combination of natural lighting and a great view of the landscape.
The standard has a number of versions suitable for different project types; new construction, renovation and interior, housing, core and shell projects, commerce, schools, health services and numerous other versions under development.
The LEED standard constitutes as a tool for green construction addressing the entire life cycle of a structure and identifies optimal construction strategies. It examines the design, execution and structure’s operation according to environmental indicators. The indices address issues such as: energy, water, materials, waste, health, transportation and others.
The standard is divided into seven chapters:
Each chapter includes subchapters presenting criteria for measurement and evaluation. The standard provides a score (point system) for meeting the requirements specified in each subchapter. Any requirement that is met must be supported by a number of documents: photos and plans, to name a few. The project is rated according to the points earned, leading to its final score as it is based on a scoring system of 100 points.
The project must accumulate:
