LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, a non-profit trade organization.
LEED® for Homes provides independent, rigorous, third-party verification that a house was built (or rebuilt) using best practices aimed at improving energy and water efficiency, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, improving indoor air quality, protecting natural resources, and reducing long-term environmental impacts. There are four levels of certification a project can earn: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Certified and Silver ratings represent a house that was built as a system with good building practices. Gold and Platinum generally are highly efficient homes that incorporate advanced building techniques to make them perform best-in-class.
Meadowlark Builders has certified, or is pending LEED® certification on many of our projects. What’s in it for our customers? Knowing their home has been fully tested and certified to be one of the most efficient homes in the nation.
