LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), at Monteith we understand the importance of conserving the environment while creating the foundation for tomorrow to build on. Owners with LEED® certified buildings are making not only a decision that helps the environment, but one that also benefits them.
Monteith is proud to be an industry leader in many aspects of green building practices, with an ongoing commitment to the use of “Green” products and systems; and promotion of environmentally responsible buildings. The LEED system consists of a series of rating systems based on the design, construction and operation of buildings.
The LEED point system is broken down into five categories;
- Sustainable sites
- Water efficiency
- Energy and atmosphere
- Materials and resources

Many of our staff are LEED-Accredited Professionals who posses the critical expertise required to assist in the design of buildings targeting a LEED certification. In conjunction with our staff, while working or LEED associated projects Monteith provides specialized qualifications of all subcontractors to ensure certification goals are met or exceeded.
