Summit Smith is committed to the long term sustainability of all of our projects. From early design through completion and operation, our team members work to cost effectively implement proven sustainable practices that improve our facilities operations and long term viability.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
Summit Smith has LEED Accredited Professionals to assist throughout the entire design and certification process. We expertly assist Clients in the Pre-Construction phases, exploring all sustainable alternatives to determine the cost, feasibility and life cycle impact of each LEED credit option.
