“Since 1994, the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy Efficient Design(LEED) certification program has informed guests when office buildings, hospitals, schools and more meet the highest levels of sustainability and resource efficiency with a rating of Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Criteria include building materials, water efficiency and energy use, to name a few. While you often hear about office buildings, hospitals and the like being LEED-certified, many people don’t realize that LEED certification touches structures beyond our everyday use. We’ve pulled together a list of interesting projects most people might overlook when it comes to achieving LEED certification.” – Alex Argento
Alex Argento, Vice President at PuraTerra, a sustainable material solutions company, has put together a list of projects that aren’t your typical, run-of-the-mill LEED-certified buildings. Check out the list of projects in his article here, published in Green Building Elements.
