hear in the news quite a bit about 'going green.' The question construction companies
must to ask is how can they keep construction projects at cost but at the same
time harmonious with the environment? The answer is becoming a LEED construction
company and using the LEED certification process on their projects.
does LEED certification mean for commercial construction companies?
of waste sent to landfills
- Conservation of water and energy
of greenhouse gas emissions
- Qualify for tax allowances, zoning accommodations
and other incentives
- Lower costs of operation and increased asset value
addition to the above there is also the peace of mind of knowing that you show
that you genuinely care about the environment and the social responsibilities
you have as a business. Green buildings promote healthy living by existing in
harmony with the environment. They decrease carbon emissions by using energy efficient
appliances and bio-degradable or recyclable materials.
The financial benefits
of LEED certification like lower cost of operation and asset value make it a win-win
for construction companies. In effect, LEED certification rewards LEED construction
companies, real estate developers and business owners for being conscientious
about their impact on the environment. As the increasing demand for green buildings
continues, this will open up additional jobs which will stimulate growth in the
construction economy. This in turn will require a skilled and knowledgeable workforce
about environmentally friendly technology and motivate the search for new and
more cost-effective ways to maintain a sustainable balance with the environment.
the end, green commercial buildings and energy efficient housing make sense. LEED-certification
for future building projects may become mandatory. While some organizations may
be late coming on board with construction involving green buildings, the LEED
construction companies that have already taken a pro-active stand towards sustainable
environment conservation will benefit from the financial benefits and increase
in property value.
Investors for the construction projects need to be educated
and involved in the process of LEED-certification. It benefits all involved ultimately.
Healthy living and work environments, profitability and tax breaks and incentives
make for an appealing enticement to 'go green.' Informing the general public and
shareholders is crucial to getting more organizations to build green buildings
when undertaking new construction projects.
LEED-certification for new buildings
or existing buildings is the wave of the future and the direction we need to go
in to preserve the environment. The days of lead-based paints, appliances that
waste power and water and asbestos are over. Project Coordinators, architects,
electricians, woodworkers, LEED construction companies . . . there are many different
parties involved in construction projects from the planning phase to implementation.
The most powerful and effective tool is an informed consumer. Inquire about
whether the construction company uses energy efficient fixtures, or has any water
conservation measures in place. The more aware the public is about the importance
of green buildings, the more construction companies and developers will deliver
construction projects that comply with the criteria for green buildings. It benefits
LEED construction companies, big business and the tenants, the shareholders, investors
and the community in general. In other words, everyone wins.
