With it being Earth Day yesterday, many of us had thoughts of what we have been doing and what we plan to do to contribute to making our world a greener place. While there are many initiatives on the personal front that my family does daily to help Mother Earth, it’s great to work for a company that also works daily to do its part to make a difference. LEED has put conscientiousness on the map for architects, contractors, owners, and occupants.
Here is a list of LEED projects we’ve been a part of, in honour of Earth Day 2013. I hope next year our list is twice as long!
