Credits Knowledge Makes For Better LEED Project, Says USGBC

It may seem obvious, but one of the fundamentals of gaining LEED status is knowing how the different credits apply. Without this, it can be difficult to plan a project successfully.

If your company wants to address several different areas at once, it will likely need help from an expert. This can help you learn what qualifies for different credits and how various programs fit together.

The United States Green Building Council recently listed this as one of five tips for better project management. This comes along with other advice to keep work simple by making project design easier to follow. The source also recommended that project teams communicate well with each other for better results, something that may be difficult with complicated goals and requirements.

Credits mastery is also crucial because trends are likely to change. An Office Insight post recently commented on the growing importance of furniture in the workplace. Gensler Design Principal Todd Heiser told the source company furniture use is now different with office preferences evolving.

"Because leases are getting shorter, we are starting to see a lot of furniture as a replacement for architecture," Heiser said. "As designers we certainly see a lot more products that enable temporary, architectural-like solutions for clients that don't plan to be in one space for 20 years. Certain pieces of furniture are acting as a replacement for architecture."

The materials that go into furniture products can help business qualify for credits if they know what they're looking for. Turn to environmental office solutions specialists for help developing a new, environmentally-friendly strategy.
