DOCKSIDE GREEN: LEED PLATINUM NEIGHBOURHOOD

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a globally recognized rating system for measuring the sustainability of development and construction projects. LEED ND (LEED for Neighbourhood Development) is built around progressive thinking about the way in which projects relate to their social, material, economic, and geographic context, incorporating principles of sustainable growth, urbanism, and green building processes and technologies. A LEED ND designation recognizes projects that successfully protect and enhance the overall health of the natural environment and the quality of life for residents and the surrounding community.

Released in late 2016 LEED ND v4 represents the most stringent and comprehensive system for the design and implementation of sustainable development.
