LEED Buildings

LEED® Buildings

LEED® stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. LEED® Certification is granted by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED® buildings are resource efficient, use less water and energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A LEED® building provides health benefits to its occupants as well as to the environment. LEED® buildings must meet criteria in six categories, including Sustainable Sites; Water Efficiency; Energy & Atmosphere; Materials & Resources; Indoor Environmental Quality; and Innovation & Design Process.

A Metro ordinance states that Metro buildings of 5,000 square feet or larger must be built or renovated to LEED® Silver or greater levels of certification. In accordance with the ordinance, General Services is proud to have built 21 LEED® certified buildings in its portfolio, including 12 LEED® Silver, 8 LEED® Gold and 1 LEED® Platinum. LEED® facilities under construction include the Criminal Justice Center and the Metro Nashville Police Department Headquarters and Family Justice Center. Additionally, each year, General Services submits a report to Metro council detailing the energy, water, and financial savings resulting from these high performance buildings.
