GH Phipps has been committed to green building since 1992. We know that the built environment has an impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy. By adopting green building strategies, the impact on the environment can be reduced by:
Sustainable construction methods can be integrated into buildings at any stage, from design and construction, to renovation and deconstruction. We prefer early participation with the project’s design team to determine which sustainability solutions make the most sense – from setting LEED™ credit category goals, to identifying innovative practices that can make a building easier on the planet.
Phipps has constructed 28 projects that are certified as meeting or on track to be LEED™ certified, and several others have been designed and built to meet LEED™ certification standards. In addition, Phipps' staff includes 26 employees with LEED™ professional credentials, demonstrating a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles, and LEED™ Rating Systems.
The LEED™ Green Building Rating System is a third-party certification program administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C.-based, nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance buildings.
