LEED Project Certification
The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® green building program is the preeminent program for the design, construction, maintenance, and operations of high-performance green buildings. Learn more at usgbc.org/LEED. The 3R team provides extensive knowledge of the LEED certification process from registration to certification. Our team has reviewed 5,000 LEED projects, so we have seen it all and we know how to best get a project certified. We have been involved with all building types from schools to airports to multi-million square foot Class A office buildings to multi-family apartments and everything in between.
If LEED isn’t the path your project wants to follow, our consultants can help determine if another path better suits your needs. The WELL Building Standard® (WELL), Living Building Challenge, Parksmart, and Green Globes are all green building certification options that our consultants can help navigate with your team. Our consultants establish a partnership with your team to define an efficient path to certification while meeting your key project goals of increased building asset value, design integrity, and sustainable solutions.
WELL Building Standard
We spend 90% of our time indoors and this has a huge impact on human well-being. Launched in 2014, the WELL Building Standard (WELL) covers eight concepts that address not only building design and operation, but also the impact that those categories have on human health and well-being. 3R’s IWBI-trained WELL AP’s and Testing Agents have the expertise you need to navigate the WELL standard for your building.
The Green Globes rating system is an interactive and flexible certification and assessment program for users and provides information and guidance for the design, operation, and management of Green Buildings. Through Green Globes, builders can obtain the third-party assessment of the environmental aspects of the building and receive recognition through certification
Parksmart offers parking structure operators an integrated path into urban sustainability by providing a framework that recognizes parking structures that reduce their environmental impact, increase their energy efficiency, manage parking spaces efficiently, encourage alternative mobility options, and strengthen community relationships. 3R has Parksmart Advisors on staff to help you realized goals that reduce climate impact from transportation.

LEED Feasibility Study
When including our team in the early stages of pre-design, we will review and understand the owner’s project requirements, then analyze the strategies that support high-performance and cost-effective design.
As part of our services as your LEED Consultant, or as a stand-alone service, our team can assess all of your completed LEED documentation prior to formal submission to identify any errors or potential issues. With our extensive review experience, we are very familiar with the credit requirements and are able to provide a pre-submittal evaluation in an effort to minimize the number of formal review comments received.
Our expertise and extensive knowledge of the LEED certification process enables us to provide an on-going review of project documentation to ensure a well-coordinated project that is consistently documented across all credits. Well-organized documentation is a key factor for successful certification.
We understand that the Appeal Review process can be frustrating to a project team and costly, both in time and money. 3R can provide guidance and assist you in resolving any outstanding issues that may be delaying your building’s LEED certification. Our consultants have a great deal of experience in the appeal process and can offer insight and solutions to get your prerequisites and credits awarded.
