Today, more companies are assuming greater environmental and social responsibility by choosing “green buildings” that are LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance sustainable buildings.
Companies recognize the benefits of environmentally friendly developments — reduced capital, operating and maintenance costs, a healthier work environment, and conservation of our natural resources — and look to Lauth for its expertise in sustainability. With many LEED Accredited Professionals in house, we continually integrate many green building aspects into the design, development and construction of projects.
In addition to designing for LEED certification, we also look for opportunities to integrate design and the natural environment. For example, one premier Lauth office park features an innovative design with Parkology™, or the marriage of nature and technology, while another park incorporates an extensive wetlands area into the overall development. Both projects exemplify Lauth’s sensitivity to the environment, balancing nature with human needs.
