Scull Construction’s commitment to excellence and sound environmental practices is evident in our dedication to sustainable building and the level knowledge our staff has of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) practices.
What are “Green Buildings”?
Green or “sustainable” buildings use key resources like energy, water, materials, and land more efficiently than buildings that are just built to code. With more natural light and better air quality, green buildings typically contribute to improved occupant health, comfort, and productivity. The United States Green Building Council (USGBC), a national non-profit membership organization, developed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) System to provide a guideline and rating system for green buildings. If you meet a certain rating level in the LEED system, the USGBC provides official certification for your building.
During the construction process of a green building, Scull Construction utilizes the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) System, a Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED encourages the adoption of sustainable green building and development practices while providing guidelines and requirements for buildings. The benefits of green buildings include lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emission, less exposure to mold, mildew and indoor toxins. Learn more at www.usgbc.org.
