LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the acronym for the whole green building industry. LEED requirements are subdivided into two main categories.
- LEED Certifications for building projects
- LEED Accreditation for building professionals
Leadership in our industry is a priority for The Robert Henry Corporation and has been since our founding in 1974. As a first step to attaining LEED Accreditation, The Robert Henry Corporation joined the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) in February 2008. The USGBC is a non-profit community of leaders working to make green buildings available to everyone within a generation.
We recognize that green building isn't just a trend. Our USGBC membership not only helps us maintain a leading position in our industry, but also affirms our commitment to the future - pro-actively working to build a sustainable environment.
Although LEED Accreditation requirements are strict and the process is lengthy, The Robert Henry Corporation is beginning to embrace LEED construction techniques on all of our projects, even when the projects are not candidates for LEED certification.
- We understand green and continue to develop green habits.
- We encourage and assist our building professionals in attaining their LEED Accreditations
- We treat all project submissions as if the project was a LEED project
- We make every effort to increase our efficiency in managing building materials to conserve natural resources and energy as well as to keep construction costs in check
- We recycle
- We keep our clients' sites safe, clean, and green throughout the construction phase of their projects
