LEED Certification of Your Green Building

YKK AP professionals assist architects, developers, owners and builders in gaining LEED certification of their building designs. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.

In its ongoing efforts to define what constitutes a “green building,” U.S. Green Building Council has published a portfolio of LEED certification rating systems for different types of buildings. These include new commercial construction and major renovation, core and shell development, and schools.
