LEEDing the Way

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 14, 2011) - In our December issue, Construction Digital rounds up the leading innovators in green building.

In 1998, the U.S. Green Buildings Council (USGBC) created the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system to serve as an international standard for the growing trends in sustainable architecture and building practices.

The LEED point system challenges designers and engineers to carefully consider water usage, carbon production, impact of construction on local environments, and energy efficiency, encouraging creative innovation for more than a decade. In this article, we round up some of the best recent advances in green building that are helping project teams everywhere reach Platinum certification.

Some of our top picks include Sage electrochromic glass, a DC power distribution plan for commercial buildings, and cloud-based sustainability analysis for building projects.
