BUILDING ON PRINCIPLES
At GBS, green building means more than the design, construction and maintenance of high-performance environments. It's the shared belief that expertise and dedication will one day produce buildings that give more than they take—buildings that contribute to the well-being of both the ecology and economy of the communities they serve.
This principle forms the cornerstone of Green Building Services and is one of the many reasons why our simple, smart, sustaining solutions receive national recognition. In fact, over the past six years GBS has had the opportunity to work on some of the most innovative and recognized projects in the country. Whether in education, healthcare, hospitality, community development or another sector where GBS has proven expertise, we have provided knowledge, the passion and the experience to help our clients both fulfill and exceed their sustainability and green building goals.
As an essential element of our work, Green Building Services has been engaged with the US Green Building Council and the LEED® Rating System at its infancy. In our work as consultants, having supported the certification of numerous LEED® projects, and as LEED-NC certification reviewers, USGBC pilot managers and training faculty, GBS has engaged and helped lead the LEED® movement like perhaps no other firm in the US. Through our experience, GBS has developed a suite of services, tools and processes that set the standard for LEED® consulting and project management.
