As a supplier to construction projects worldwide, it is important that Spiralite ductwork delivers energy and whole-of-life cost savings that are verifiable by green building organisations internationally. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) which originated in the United States is the most widely used third-party verification for green buildings, with around 1.85 million square feet being certified daily.
The framework addresses design and construction activities for both new buildings and major renovations of existing buildings. This includes major HVAC improvements, significant building envelope modifications and major interior rehabilitation. This provides a framework for designing and constructing green buildings, where all concerned can create a healthy, resource-efficient, cost-effective environment to live and work. A building that enhances the lives and experiences of everyone who walks through its doors, and has the added bonus of saving money too.
LEED can be applied to all types of buildings, from homes to corporate headquarters, at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues including energy saving, water usage and carbon emissions.
92.2% – The percentage of LEED-certified new construction projects that are improving energy performance by at least 10.5%, according to an analysis of 7,100 projects.*
