Lund-Ross Staff Earn Green Building Accreditation
Brown and Ehlers Become LEED APs
Omaha, Neb., August 2008 – Lund-Ross Constructors has two newly certified LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) on staff to provide guidance in green building practices and principles for Lund-Ross clients.
Project Managers Scott Brown and Chris Ehlers earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Professional Accreditation in July 2008, and are now serving as LEED APs on Lund-Ross projects in Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming.
The LEED Green Building Rating System is nationally recognized as the standard in green building. The system promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by analyzing sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection and indoor environmental quality. LEED was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which Lund-Ross joined in March 2008.
Many Lund-Ross projects are incorporating sustainable construction techniques like low-emission building materials and rainwater harvesting for landscape irrigation. As the demand for green building practices grows, Brown and Ehlers can guide clients through the development and execution of sustainable construction projects.
The USGBC is a non-profit organization composed of more than 15,000 organizations from across the building industry that are working to advance structures that are both environmentally responsible and profitable. USGBC members include building owners, real estate developers, architects, engineers, general contractors, government agencies and nonprofits.
