LEED for Homes

When designing and constructing a new building project, project teams are left with a choice: the option to build an innovative green building from the ground-up, or maintain the status quo by creating a water-guzzling, energy-wasting traditional structure. We’re in favor of the former. LEED for Building Design and Construction (LEED BD+C) provides a framework for building a holistic green building, giving you the chance to nail down every sustainability feature, maximizing the benefits.  

LEED is changing the built environment

Proven performance: nothing comes close If you’re serious about saving money, conserving energy, reducing water consumption, improving indoor air quality, making better building material choices, and driving innovation, then LEED is the best choice. Bar none. LEED is helping to deliver energy and water efficient, healthy, environmentally-friendly cost saving buildings, homes and communities. LEED is more than points and credits Behind the LEED program is an immense infrastructure developed to support the leaders in the industry as they innovate and create cutting-edge, high performance buildings, homes and neighborhoods. USGBC invests over $30 million a year to maintain, operate and improve LEED and its customer delivery. No other rating system has an infrastructure that comes close to LEED.


Third-party certification verifies that your project is designed, built and operating the way it was intended. It is also your first step toward managing your building through its entire lifecycle. 10 billion square feet of space has been certified using LEED, with 1.7 million more square feet certifying daily. Your project will be in good company among the most efficient, high-performing buildings across the globe.


Once you establish a benchmark for optimal operations, you are able to measure the ongoing performance of your building, ensuring you continue to save energy, water, money and other critical resources year after year.
