LEED Consulting / Green Building Certification

Alto Sustainability possesses an in-depth knowledge of the LEED certification process, including all phases of the design and construction process. We effectively deliver an integrated approach on every project to help pinpoint and implement your sustainability goals.

At the beginning of each project, we conduct a LEED charrette to assess the financial and environmental impacts and benefits of various green building strategies. We use a holistic approach with collaboration from the project stakeholders and professionals to address high performance building strategies, including energy efficiency, water savings and materials reduction.

One outcome of the LEED charrette is a preliminary strategy for certification, including the credits which the project team aims to incorporate in the design and construction of the project. Communicating this strategy with the project team early helps to ensure that the sustainable building elements will be reflected in the design and construction documents and specifications. We continually review the construction documents, specifications, and submittals, and we provide practical feedback to the project team to ensure LEED compliance.

Alto Sustainability is highly qualified to manage the LEED documentation process for your project. Specifically, we have experience documenting every prerequisite and credit within the LEED for New Construction rating system, which can help provide a cohesive, unified LEED documentation package to the USGBC.
