LEED® Project Management

An internationally recognized certification of building excellence and environmental responsibility, LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an excellent marketing tool. A LEED® designation identifies homebuilders that are committed to top-notch design and construction practices. Houses certified under the LEED® for Homes rating system have lower energy and water bills, improved indoor air quality, and lowers susceptibility to mold, mildew and other indoor contaminants.

As a long standing member of the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) and the new LEED® for Homes v4 Technical Review Committee, Building Knowledge Canada has an in-depth understanding of this rating system and the most cost-effective strategies for achieving certification. Building Knowledge Canada takes the stress out of the certification process and ensures a smooth, hassle-free design and construction period.
