Did you know that the U.S. Green Building Council has reached one billion square feet of LEED-certified construction? The announcement was made by President and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council Rick Fedrizzi at the 2010 Greenbuild conference. While this is a huge accomplishment, Fedrizzi noted that this is just the beginning of a long journey of green building.

According to Architecture Week, the U.S. Green Building Council will continue that journey with a few new programs.  The U.S. Green Building Council has launched two new green building rating systems, LEED for Healthcare and LEED for Retail, which will add to the amount of LEED-certified spaces and encourage further development of green building practices. The LEED Volume Program is another new program from the U.S. Green Building Council, which is a certification program designed to streamline the LEED certification process and make it more manageable for high-volume property developers.

It is exciting to see how far the LEED certification program has come and the new ways that buildings can become LEED-certified. Trilogy Partners is proud to have contributed to one billion square-feet of LEED-certified spaces and we look forward to contributing to the next one billion square-feet of LEED-certified construction!
