LEED Gold Certification


LEED-certified homes are designed to optimize fresh air indoors and minimize exposure to airborne toxins and pollutans.


On average, LEED-certified homes use 20 to 30% less energy and water than a home built to code. Using fewer resources means lower utility bills each month.


LEED-certified homes are third-party inspected performance tested, and certified to perform better than a conventional home.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high‐performance green homes, including affordable housing, custom designs, and urban apartments and lofts in historic buildings.
