Sustainable Design and Green Building



Joslin Consulting provides LEED™ Management, which ensures the sustainable design of commercial construction projects. LEED™ stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and was created by the U.S. Department of Energy to provide a green building system rating.

What is Green Building?



Green building is defined not only by what materials are used in the construction of a building but also by how “green” it is throughout its lifecycle. In order to build green, everything from siting to future energy efficiency is taken into account. Building green is a focus on the sustainability of building as a whole, which is why its often defined as “Sustainable Design.” Along with efficiency and conservation, to be considered sustainable a building’s design must focus on the health of its occupants by reducing human exposure to pollutants.

As soon as the decision is made to embrace the sustainable design and green building approach, the best possible project team should be assembled. Even if LEED™ Certification is not required, the strategies, materials and processes remain the same, and consultants, architects, and engineers with special expertise are imperative.

If LEED™ Certification is the goal, a good LEED™ Manager benefits different teams in different ways but is essential to the process.
