Our team works to build and renovate homes that are more environmentally responsible, by following the construction standards outlined in the LEED program. At Cast, we can build to any LEED rating — Certified, Silver, Gold, Platinum — regardless of the size of your project. At Cast Sustainable, LEED certifications and guidelines are at the forefront of each of our renovation and new home projects. We have made a conscious choice to follow the guidelines and pursue certification whenever possible to contribute to a greener future.
Applying LEED Standards To Your Project
Although LEED Platinum should always be the goal, we can build to any standard of LEED that you wish. Whether you are building a new home or undertaking a major renovation, LEED standards can be applied to almost any project. Major renovations are those where the exterior, mechanics, HVAC and major interior changes are being renovated.
History Of The LEED Certification Program
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is one of the most popular green building certification programs and has been implemented in over 150 countries around the world. Developed by the US Green Building Council, it includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes and neighbourhoods. LEED aims to help building owners and operators become environmentally responsible, live healthy, and use resources efficiently.
