Most of the conversation about high-performing buildings in the past 20 years has been driven by the U.S. Green Building Council and its LEED rating system. While LEED is both widely respected and widely adopted as a third-party verification program with approximately 2.2 million square feet of space being certified daily, clearly the sustainability conversation is changing.
Among big box retailers that conversation is about energy production, not just energy use. Since many of our commercial clients include these big box retailers, I took the opportunity to delve deeper into their focus on high-performing buildings and the benefits derived from that focus.
