The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system is the industry standard for design, construction, & operation of green buildings. LEED certified buildings help owners lower operating costs, improve working environments for their tenants, and provide a competitive marketing advantage for their buildings.

LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance

EBI understands that many building owners and operators are looking to further demonstrate their commitment to sustainable operations through the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M certification. We can assist in navigating the requirements and impacts of achieving certification for a wide variety of buildings and portfolios.

The LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M rating system focuses on the ongoing operation and performance of the building (a continuous event for the life of the building), rather than a one-time construction event, as is seen in some of the other LEED rating systems.

LEED Feasibility Studies

By first benchmarking a building’s performance, then assessing the status of the building’s current operations as compared to LEED requirements, EBI’s LEED Feasibility Study helps determine how feasible certification is. EBI’s study provides a common sense cost effective approach to achieving LEED for Existing Buildings: O&M certification.

LEED Facilitation and Certification  

EBI can assist building owners and managers in the planning and execution of the LEED certification process. With our step-by-step approach, we will assist our clients in the development of a building-specific certification plan.
