Our commitment to sustainable development
Many organizations today view sustainability as a desired benefit for construction projects. Through the use of responsible engineering and good construction practices, sustainable construction projects are becoming the norm. Whether it be a particular level of LEED accreditation or an internal measure of sustainability, Independent Project Managers have successfully completed several projects that focused on sustainability as an end goal.
LEED certification means healthier, more productive places, reduced stress on the environment by encouraging energy and resource-efficient buildings, and savings from increased building value, higher lease rates and decreased utility costs. In fact, 88 of the Fortune 100 companies are already using LEED.
The LEED plaque on a building is a mark of quality and achievement in green building.
Leaders across the globe have made LEED the most widely used green building rating system in the world with 1.85 million square feet of construction space certifying every day. LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings. LEED is the triple bottom line in action, benefiting people, planet and profit.
IPM has extensive experience successfully completing both new construction as well as major renovation LEED projects from Silver through Platinum certification levels. We work closely with the Design Team to identify achievable LEED points. Based upon this assessment, we would facilitate the team in preparing a report for the achievability of a specific level of LEED certification and the action plan required to achieve this including any anticipated premium costs for review by the Project Team.
