Sustainable Design / LEED
SGM’s portfolio includes many LEED certified projects and LEED registered projects, totaling more than 3M SF of green space. SGM is proud a member of the US Green Building Council and is committed to environmental stewardship and social responsibility. We employ LEED accredited professionals from all engineering and architecture disciplines familiar with Green Building design requirements and documenting projects for certification under the United States Green Building Council’s LEED rating system. We achieve sustainable solutions through an integrated design approach, having professionals interact regularly from the sustainability charrette to final construction detailing to achieve sustainable solutions which benefit both the client and the environment. SGM strives for top performing designs and LEED enhances this goal through efficient use of energy, environmental, and human resources. These aspects directly translate into economic benefits for our clients. A one-time investment premium of less than 1% of costs can increase energy efficiency 20-30% in comparison to standard building code practices.
