Paradigm Design supports the growing movement to design, construct, and promote buildings that are environmentally responsible as well as healthy places to live and work. We are an active member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) currently have seven LEED Accredited Professionals, and one LEED Green Associate on staff. We attend and participate in USGBC workshops and online courses designed to increase knowledge about green building. We also supplement the courses/workshops with related videos and articles contributed by experts in the marketplace, including USGBC staff.
Paradigm Design and its consultants are familiar with the requirements of the LEED criteria, prerequisites, and credits. We understand the importance of applying the LEED criteria to the design and construction process of building projects. We have first-hand experience in the certification process through our involvement as the “Team Leader” on both private and public sector LEED projects. Additionally, we promote and utilize the design, construction, and management ideas outlined in the LEED rating system to inform and enhance our client discussions. The benefit of incorporating sustainable design principals into any project has great merit regardless of LEED status, and we strongly support and encourage the discussion and inclusion of these concepts wherever reasonably possible.
