Straughan provided sustainability consulting services during building construction in support of the project goal of achieving a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) v.3 certification at the highest LEED level – Platinum certification. Specific activities included developing and implementing a LEED Strategy plan to ensure the LEED goal would be met. Our LEED process included the preparation of a Total Materials Cost Analysis during pre-construction to outline how the project would earn the maximum LEED materials credit. Every LEED credit included a detailed strategy for achieving the highest levels. In addition, over the 12 months of construction, we completed LEED documentation for the project and the project earned a LEED certification at the platinum level.
