Which buildings can be LEED certified? The LEED certification system is designed for the certification of new constructions as well as the renovation of tertiary, institutional and housing buildings. It is divided into several certification systems adapted to each type of project:
LEED provides tools to assist building owners and operators to measure and improve performance in seven key areas with human and environmental impacts.
• Sustainable development of sites
• Water savings
• Energy efficiency
• Materials choice
• Indoor environmental quality
• Innovation and design
• Regional priority
How does the LEED label work?
Each of the seven categories has a series of appropriations covering the most important environmental problems. Each credit can give one or more points based on the progress made in meeting the requirements. The criteria are defined in detailed guidelines for different types of construction, such as new and existing buildings, schools, the health sector, commercial premises and commercial interiors.
