For customers interested in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification offered by the US Green Building Council, we can offer points toward certification in two categories. Since every board and beam we offer is guaranteed reclaimed wood, our products would be eligible for the following LEED categories:
MR Credit 3: Materials Reuse
MR Credit 5: Regional Materials (within 500 miles)
Using reclaimed wood can earn these credits towards achieving LEED project certification. Since it is recycled material, it meets the “Materials and Resources” criteria for LEED certification.
For more information or to see if your project can achieve LEED certification, check out the LEED website.
