LEED Certified

Efficient. Reliable. Experienced.

Here at The Acanthus Group, we are dedicated to improving the sustainability of the buildings we remodel. All of the newly renovated homes are LEED Certified. These improvements not only allow for lower costs on the tenants side, but also leave a lasting impact on the environment. So you may ask, "What is LEED?" 

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects must satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. 

 

Why LEED

Buildings that can create a healthier, more sustainable future.

 

Indoor Quality

LEED creates healthier spaces with cleaner air, access to daylight, and free from harmful chemicals found in paints and finishings.

Reducing Waste

By 2030, LEED projects will have diverted more than 540 million tons of waste from landfills.

Water Efficiency

Conserving water, inside and out to reduce costs and consumption.

Materials And Resources

Using more green materials, including renewable materials, recycled materials, and natural materials, is good for the building occupants and the environment. 

LEED and Historic  Buildings

Below are are few projects that combined Historic Restoration and LEED

1925 Vine

Upgrades to the mechanical systems, alot of air sealing, and a great team.  This old building was restored with historic tax credits and to LEED standards.

1925 Vine Interior

It doesn't get much greener then reusing what is already present.  Floors, trim, and so much more were kept out of the landfill and put back to use.
