Why Follow When You Can LEED?

LEED Certified- Block Real Estate ServicesDoes your company have a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified development? LEED, is a building certification program, through the USGBC (United States Green Building Council) that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.  Having a LEED certified building saves both money and resources while promoting renewable clean energy. By being a part of the LEED program you are  helping transform  how buildings are designed, constructed, maintained and operated.
