LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
LEED is a nationally recognized Green Building Rating System that provides a means of measuring and verifying how green your building is. LEED was launched by the US Green Building Council in 1998 and has since grown into a worldwide movement to green our buildings.

Green Building is a new discipline to many in the construction industry. We are all crunched for time to develop a project on time and on budget. How in the world can you integrate another set of expectations?
A LEED consultant can help you and your Building Team learn how to cost-effectively integrate LEED into your project.
Our extensive experience provides us with a deep and broad knowledge base which is necessary for the efficient and effective execution of LEED. LEED is not just a plaque; it is a way of thinking and at C-Wise we don’t just talk about sustainability, we live it. That is a difference our clients can count on.
