The mission of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is “To Transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.”
The most accepted tool in measuring performance is through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification, which is an internationally-recognized, third-party measurement of innovative design and construction in the following areas:
- Site planning
- Water Management
- Energy Efficiency
- Material Use
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Design Innovation
Building green considers the life cycle of the building and building materials, as well as the comfort of occupants. This process of design, construction and certification requires collaborative teamwork between the client, design professional, contractor and supplier.
Cline Construction Group is committed to working with project teams to help fulfill this vision.
