LEED Construction

Our Green Initiative and LEED Building Practices

ANF Group team’s experience in LEED charrettes, which are meetings that include architects, building owners, MEP engineers, code/regulatory officials, and other stakeholders have allowed us to help the team meet LEEDS greatest challenge which is the creation of buildings that provide improved environmental performance at a competitive initial cost.

Understanding the fact that every building is unique, LEED points are awarded for buildings that meet specified design and performance criteria. The total design and overall building performance are evaluated, not just the individual parts. We assist the team with the selection of specific products that contribute to LEED ratings in two ways. First, material composition can contribute to an overall score. For example, the recycled material content of a product becomes part of a total recycled material score that may qualify for a LEED point. Second, building products can facilitate attainment of building performance objectives. For instance, a product that adds insulation value contributes to the overall thermal performance of the building envelope, and therefore to attainment of energy consumption objectives.

Knowledge is key!

Our knowledge makes us a key team player in the design process by considering how building systems interact with each other early in the design process and assisting the architects so they are better able to create designs that meet functional, environmental and cost objectives.
