Building Sustainability
for a greener future

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2000 and provides verification that a building was designed and built using aspects of efficient environmental health conservation strategies. The certification, which is divided into four levels – Basic, Silver, Gold, and Platinum – recognizes performance in areas including: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, indoor environmental quality, and construction waste management.

Since 2004, KBE Building Corporation has actively embraced the practice of sustainable design. Many of our staff are LEED Accredited Professionals or LEED Green Associates. These staff members include our senior leadership, project managers, project engineers, assistant project managers, and preconstruction professionals. KBE has been involved in 20+ LEED certified projects and other projects that incorporate significant sustainable design measures.
