According to Turner Construction Company’s “Green Building Barometer,” 75% of commercial real estate executives – including developers, rental building owners, brokers, architects, engineers and others – say the credit crunch will not discourage them from building green. In fact, 83% said they would be “extremely” or “very” likely to seek LEED certification for buildings they are planning to build within the next three years.
When a company is looking to start a building project with an aim for LEED certification, the use of a LEED AP not only garners a point for the company on the LEED certification checklist, it also helps the project stay on its eco-friendly building plan.
