LEED for Homes Program

leed for homes the LEED for Homes program, LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design), is a national program and administered by the united states green building council (usgbc). This is the most comprehensive green building program in the country. only new construction or “gut rehabs”/major remodels can qualify for the leed for homes program. we like to refer to this program as a “darker shade of green” because it is so comprehensive and involved.

Build It Green

Similar in spirit to the LEED for Homes program, we like to refer to GreenPoint Rated as a “lighter shade of green” because it can be easier to apply to projects seeking a “green rating.”
