LEED Certification

LEED for New Construction

The LEED for New Construction (NC) Rating System is designed to guide and distinguish high-performance commercial and institutional projects. Progressive companies understand the significance of sustainability in the evolving marketplace and recognize that integrating sustainability – and LEED certification – into new construction projects can create value and contribute to bottom line growth.

Recognizing SSC’s expertise and consistent successful performance, the GBCI has designated SSC as a LEED® Proven Provider™, which will enable clients to meet certification budgets and deadlines while maximizing project potential.

LEED For Existing Buildings

The LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Rating System is designed to help building owners and managers maximize operational efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts and associated financial costs. Integrating sustainability – and LEED certification – into existing buildings can deliver both market and financial benefits.

Benefits of LEED EB: O&M Certification:

  • Provide utility cost savings for energy and water, typically 25% to 40%
  • Reduce 'carbon footprint' from associated utility savings
  • Streamline and improve property programs and policies
  • Allow renegotiation of vendor contracts to include high value services such as integrated pest management
  • Take advantage financial incentives for greening existing buildings

Utilizing over ten years of practical experience and our comprehensive process, SSC provides a 'turn-key' LEED Certification service from pre-design through final certification. This integrated approach ensures project coordination and efficiency, reducing total project costs and schedule. While the ultimate goal is LEED certification, SSC’s focus is on developing effective policies and programs that meet LEED requirements and, more importantly, deliver the greatest bottom line results.

Our vast experience with managing our clients’ building portfolios gives SSC the knowledge to effectively utilize the LEED Volume Program. The LEED Volume Program for Operations and Maintenance offers a streamlined approach for organizations pursuing certification of at least 25 existing buildings.
