LEED (tm)

consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods.

Developed by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

Since its inception in 1998, the U.S. Green Building Council has grown to encompass more than 7,000 projects in the United States and 30 countries, covering over 1.501 billion square feet of development area.

LEED Gold Certification is a substantial accomplishment for the team of design and construction specialists involved in the project.  It reflects the earnestness of the El Rio Community Health Center’s ongoing commitment to promote “community wellness” and business practices responsive to public concerns.
