Benefits of a
LEED-certified home:

Environmental—reduced greenhouse gas emissions sustainable building materials, and efficient use of land, water, and alternative energy

Health — safe interiors with cleaner filtered air and less exposure to mold, mildew, and indoor toxins

Economic—zero heating and cooling bills, lower energy and water bills, and may be eligible for lower financing fees and insurance rates.

 


All SpringLeaf's homes can be designed to achieve LEED certification, a rating system created by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). LEED certification is an independent third-party process that provides benchmarks for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. All LEED homes are third-party inspected, performance tested, and certified to be higher-performing than conventional homes. Our model home at 3979 Springleaf Lane, designed by George Watt Architecture, has been registered for LEED-Platinum, the highest certification level possible.


LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing
performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site
development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor
environmental quality. LEED-Platinum buildings represent the highest quality
and energy efficiency, and far exceed Boulder’s Green Points standard for
construction.
