LEED® Certification – Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system created by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The point-based system identifies strategies to improve environmental metrics and provides a methodology for certification and third-party verification. Our objective at the outset of this project was to meet the requirements of LEED-CI V3.0 (LEED for Commercial Interiors version 3.0) Given the limitations of a leased space, we were able to address issues of natural lighting, low emitting materials, automated lighting controls, recycled materials, water management, and renewable energy. Our application was approved and our office was offcially LEED Certified in November of 2010. This is the first privately funded Pediatric Dental office in the US to receive LEED Certification.
