LEED Consulting

What is LEED?

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) introduced the 2.0 version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) building rating system for commercial, institutional, and high-rise residential buildings in June 2000. LEED evaluates environmental performance from a "whole building" perspective over a building's life cycle. The program has grown tremendously since then by proving itself a viable method of providing a third-party green building certification tool designed to ensure building owners and occupants that their building meets stringent standards of performance.

Currently referred to as LEED version 3.0 or LEED 2009, the LEED Green Building Rating System for New Construction and Major Renovations (LEED-NC) is a points-based program that guides Architects through the design of an environmentally sound building. A LEED-NC building can achieve four different levels of certification based on the number of points obtained. The levels of certification available and corresponding LEED-NC points are:

  • LEED® Certified – 40 to 49 Points

  • LEED® Silver – 50 to 59 Points

  • LEED® Gold – 60 to 69 Points

  • LEED® Platinum – 80 to 110 Points

The most effective green projects are created when there is synergy between all members of the project team. Muni-Fed Energy serves as the catalyst for this synergy. We augment a project team's resources with our dedication, knowledge and experience of sustainable building design and construction.

Our passion for green building drives us to meet a project team's needs through a holistic, integrated design process. While our direct client may be the owner, architect, contractor or facility manager, we invariably serve every team member to ensure the best possible results.

We are dedicated to the end result in each and every project. Our consultation focuses on strategies that produce the best life-cycle cost impact with improved environmental performance.
