Shannon Corporation and LEED®
One of the most important recent changes to the construction market is the green design movement, which views environmental sustainability as an important component of good design. A major proponent of this movement is the U.S. Green Building Council, who have developed a method for evaluating and certifying green buildings called LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). A host of criteria are used in the evaluation process, from water usage to heat island effect of the building to indoor air quality. The use of recycled and locally procured building materials also weighs heavily in the evaluation.
Those who want to achieve LEED certification must incorporate products with demonstrable limited environmental impact into the design and the construction process. At Shannon Corporation, you will find an impressive array of eco-friendly building materials and resources that will help you seek and achieve LEED certification.
Recognizing the importance of LEED and sustainability, Shannon Corporation has developed — and will keep developing — a comprehensive library of Shannon Principal Company Products and information that will contribute to your green design goals!
Shannon Corporation is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
