LEED for Homes Pilot Program

Intexure Architects is on the forefront of green design,  sustainability, and high-performance homes, participating in the U.S. Green Building Council pilot program LEED for Homes.   In August 2005, the U.S. Green Building Council (www.usgbc.org) announced the introduction of a new pilot-phase LEED for Homes rating system. The new system sets a national standard for environmentally responsible building in the residential sector. While there are some exceptions, most “residential green building” programs around the country have been regional in nature. LEED for Homes' goal is a national standard and certification process that encourages and regulates the green building process. Builders and consumers adopting LEED for Homes standards will find themselves at the cutting edge of green design,  sustainability, and high-performance homes, as well as promoting and implementing environmentally conscious building processes.
