Are you renovating your office? Here are five ways you may be able to boost your LEED certification rating:
- Lighting – Install energy efficient LED lights and use infrared motion detection and timers that turn lights off when a room is unoccupied.
- Surfaces – Make sure every surface coating/covering from paint to carpet is low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds) to promote healthier indoor air quality.
- Water – Revamp your bathrooms with low-flow toilets and water conserving faucets so employees can enjoy high performance plumbing without wasting water.
- Furniture – Buy furniture that is pre-owned, refurbished, or that has a high percentage of recycled content.
- Waste – Be sure to deconstruct and recycle as much material as possible during your rebuild. Track how much waste you are keeping out of the landfill for maximum points!
