Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is a rating system that evaluates how efficiently buildings use resources. For VP Engineering, the techniques that compose LEED were a logical extension of our existing design priorities and our existing, natural engineering inclinations. Energy efficiency and sustainable practices are second nature to our engineers, and while LEED is not an enforceable code, designing buildings to these conservative standards gets the most from your investment and contributes directly to the health of your occupants. As resources become scarcer and the world assumes a more conservationist stance, our designs not only keep up but set the standard for sustainability and efficiency. LEED identifies best-in-class building designs, and we stay abreast of the latest developments and harness state of the art technologies and techniques. Innovation and natural design techniques that incorporate energy efficient methodologies are critical in this field, and our engineers excel at both. Designing a fully integrated building with LEED approved practices is a design decision that we start with, not that we add as an afterthought.
