With two high-end residential projects aimed for LEED certification, we are proud to live in Colorado, which sits in the #2 spot for the Top 10 States for LEED per Capita in 2014. Colorado has made the list every year since USGBC started ranking states.
Interestingly – Last fall, the USGBC announced that it was extending the period during which projects could register under the LEED 2009 rating system from June 27, 2105 to Oct. 31, 2016. The move intends to give practitioners additional time to meet the more stringent demands of the new LEED v4 standard, particularly related to materials and post-occupancy reviews. An upgrade to LEED v4 isn’t the only means through which the USGBC is offering closer scrutiny of green-building practices. Its LEED Dynamic Plaque, which was introduced at Greenbuild 2013 and rolled out last year, tracks an existing building’s strategies including water, waste, transportation, and energy in real time.
Keep a lookout for our two projects, currently under construction…they will amaze you!
