“The LEED® green building certification program is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, consultation, and operation of green buildings”. (http://www.usgbc.org)
An attraction is growing amongst individual, public, and corporate buyers to green buildings. Lower operating costs and improved indoor environmental quality are the key values. Tenants looking to lease space and as well as buyers looking to purchase properties and homes are being pulled to green features.
LEED certification has many benefits:
PROVIDES A COMPETITIVE EDGE – Green buildings are growing more attractive to corporate, public and individual buyers
DEMONSTRATES COST EFFECTIVENESS – “An upfront investment of 2% in green building design, on average, results in life cycle savings of 20% of the total construction costs – more than ten times the initial investment . Additionally, building sale prices for energy efficient buildings are as much as 10% higher per square foot than conventional buildings.”
INCREASES RENTAL RATES – according to a 2008 Costar group study – green building assests show consistant improvements over their non-green equivalents in main areas such as occupancy, sale price and rental rates.
