After maintaining the LEED-AP* credential for several years now, Anne has taken the plunge to be LEED-AP with specialty: Building Design and Construction (BD+C).

What does this mean for our clients?

  • Assurance of third-party oversight of LEED AP credential
  • LEED AP point toward LEED Certification

Per the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) website, "The LEED AP BD+C credential provides a standard for professionals participating in the design and construction phases of high-performance, healthful, durable, affordable and environmentally sound commercial, institutional, and high-rise residential buildings. The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) created this specialty credential to denote practical knowledge of the Green Building Design + Construction LEED rating systems: LEED for New Construction, LEED for Schools and LEED for Core & Shell."

  1. Thank you for sharing the information.

    Green building itself is a boon for all as it is not only helping to control the environment by using green materials in the construction of the building but, it is also helping the protection of global warming.

    There are number of companies who are providing the service of green building and it's sustainability and there is a company named as The spinnaker group inc who is providing the service of LEED consultants in Miami.
