Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Certification
Our firm is an active and supportive member of the US Green Building Council (USGBC). Our employees are well versed in the LEED rating system and have developed innovative, automated spreadsheets to integrate with USGBC’s submittal templates. Fransen Pittman has a growing portfolio of projects achieving certification at both Silver and Gold levels. Our entire estimating and project management teams are comprised of LEED Accredited Professionals (APs), who are skilled in developing and executing construction waste management and indoor air quality plans. We are familiar with a wide range of sustainable interior products including those with recycled content, low VOCs and eligible for regional qualification.
Sustainable Building and Green Retrofit Implementation
Fransen Pittman understands that the selection of materials and building with a sustainable design philosophy requires a balance between operational efficiency, environmental impact, life cycle, material availability and overall cost. We help the project team weigh the options. For green building retrofits, our estimators use tools to identify efficiency opportunities in building envelope, interior lighting systems, heating and cooling systems, and hot water systems.
