Sustainable Building Practices
Over the past few decades, society has experienced an environmental awakening centered on the realization that the way we live and the structures we build have a serious impact on the world around us. As a result, green building practices have become both a desirable choice and a necessity for businesses and individuals focused on creating healthier environments and improving sustainability.
Whether you’re building a school, commercial complex or medical facility, it’s critical to work with a company that’s capable in all areas of green construction.
Reynolds offers our clients a staff that understands sustainable building practices, including water and energy efficiency, renewable energy and choosing preferable building materials and methods. We offer expertise in applying for sustainable programs such as LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and Green Globes or other similar ratings and certifications programs.
Our staff can also apply current technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) to sustainable building practices to improve the project delivery method.
LEED Green Construction Credentials
LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a third-party verification tool that allows us to confirm buildings and facilities are resources efficient. LEED can be applied to any building and at every project stage to provide a score based on how effectively key areas of sustainability are addressed.
Buildings that achieve one of four levels of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum) operate more efficiently and benefit from lower fuel and water consumption.

Developed by ECD Energy and Environment Canada, Green Globes provides an online assessment and certifications tool and rating system that helps builders achieve the highest standards in green construction.
