LEED FOR HOMES
First Platinum LEED Certified Homes in Georgia
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification program, providing third-party verification that a building or community incorporates strategies aimed at improving performance, increasing energy and water efficiency, reducing carbon emissions, thoughtfully utilizing our natural resources, and improving indoor environmental quality.
LEED for Homes is a consensus-developed, third party – verified rating system that provides a basis for quantifying the benefits of green homes. The rating system measures a home’s performance based on eight categories: site selection, water efficiency, materials & resources, energy & atmosphere, indoor environmental quality, location & linkages, awareness & education, and innovation. Each LEED Certified home undergoes onsite inspections and thorough performance testing to ensure proper performance.
