What is LEED®?

LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a widely recognized building and construction certification system developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED® certification, which is voluntary, is achieved by receiving an overall high score in the following metrics:

  • Site sustainability
  • Water efficiency
  • Energy and atmosphere emissions reduction
  • Material and resource utilization
  • Improved indoor environmental quality

LEED® certification can be applied to new construction, core and shell construction, commercial interiors, and any upgrades or retrofits to existing facilities. Connelly Electric has worked in each of these areas to implement cutting-edge products and methods, maximizing the efficiency of each project we undertake. We are proud to have LEED® Accredited Professionals on staff, helping our clients understand the benefits and long-term savings that come from a well-planned, LEED®-certified project, plus providing successful LEED® project management.
