There has been steady growth in green building interest since 2003. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, as of 2021, several key milestones have been reached:
- More than one billion square feet of recertified LEED space completed
- Nearly 24 billion square feet of completed construction projects are LEED registered and certified
- Over 110,000 projects participating in LEED
- More than 610 million square feet of LEED certified residential space completed
Trehel welcomes the opportunity to build or retrofit using any of the Green Building Rating Systems available in our market. However, even when the project will not be certified using a Green Building Rating System, we continue with our own standards to operate with greater efficiency and reduce the impact of the built environment on our planet.
We will continue to make significant strides toward healthier and more sustainable buildings to deliver more thoughtful and intentional facilities that enhance human health and well-being. While simultaneously reducing energy and water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and lower construction waste from landfills.
