LEED Project Consulting

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.

Green Globes

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

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.

TRUE Zero Waste

While other waste-reduction measurements focus mainly on recycling trash once it’s reached the post-consumer phase, Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE) Zero Waste works to help minimize trash output from the supply chain all the way down to the curb. TRUE Zero Waste certification evaluates projects across 15 different categories that guide facilities toward a “zero waste” end goal: maximum material efficiency, minimum environmental footprint.

LEED Feasibility Study

Companies pursue LEED certification for a number of reasons: realizing financial benefits (cost/energy/tax savings), improving the health and productivity of occupants, and positively impacting the environment, are just a few.  Whether it’s an existing building or new construction, with a feasibility study we can help you determine the most efficient path to certification, with the greatest return on your investment.

Integrated Process Optimization

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.

Pre-submittal LEED
Document Review

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.

Documentation
Coordination

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.

Appeal Review
Documentation Guidance

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.
