Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building program. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based, market­-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Participation in the LEED process demonstrates leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. LEED provides building owners and operators the tools they need to immediately impact their building’s performance and bottom line, while providing healthy indoor spaces for a building’s occupants.1

Buildings are certified according to the appropriate LEED Rating System. Likewise, design and construction professionals who demonstrate LEED knowledge and experience are eligible to be LEED accredited.  Both Brent and Sara have earned their LEED accreditation with a specialty in Homes (LEED AP + Homes). Having participated in over a dozen LEED for Homes projects in since 2008, they are well equipped to facilitate the research, documentation, and inspections involved in the LEED process.

LEED certified homes with the city of Cincinnati are eligible for significant tax abatements. Check our Resources page for more information.
