Practicing Sustainability through LEED Certifications

A lot of hard work and effort goes into ensuring that each one of our construction projects is completed to the best of our abilities. That’s how it should be, and we don’t stop there.

Sustainable construction and development is a very important aspect of our business, making certain that projects are completed without depleting natural resources or having harmful environmental impacts. That is why we are proud to have a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification on a number of our finished projects.

The LEED program is administered by the Green Building Certification Institute and was established with the support of the U.S. Green Building Council to encourage those involved in the various aspects of the construction industry to join the movement of global leaders producing innovative buildings. Projects pursuing LEED certification use less water and energy, and they reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In completing these projects as such, they are resource efficient as well as save money.

Our president, Brian Deming, pursued Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design professional accreditation (LEED AP) in 2009. LEED APs demonstrate a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED Green Building Rating System, and the certification process for new and used construction projects. Brian has helped our team understand and apply this knowledge in project development.

One of our LEED-certified projects is the Julian Serrano restaurant, located in the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Construction of this 220-seat bar was made to be sustainable in the city that never sleeps, while still fully encapsulating Chef Serrano’s vision.

In practicing sustainable development, we exercise responsibility in building for the present while helping ensure that future generations will still have resources to work with. That’s a legacy we’re proud to leave.
