I am working on a project with Structured Development, LLC at Blackhawk and Halsted Streets in Chicago that is seeking a green building, or LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), certification from the US Green Building Council.
I have been trying to learn about how one goes about obtaining a LEED certification. As I understand it, you have to earn "points" based on about a zillion factors, including proximity to mass transit, green roofs, energy-efficient design and so on. If you want to learn more, read about it with me at this site. I find it all quite interesting and I hope to write more about this in the future.
