Sustainable Green Building Construction employs a variety of practices and techniques aimed at reducing or ultimately eliminating the impact of a building on the environment and human health. Sustainable Buildings, on average, consume 26% less energy, have 13% lower maintenance costs, have 27% higher occupant satisfaction, and have 33% less greenhouse gas emissions.1
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit organization driven to increase and improve sustainable green building practices and techniques nationwide. By employing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating SystemTM, the USGBC can spread the global adoption of sustainable building construction standards and enforce universally understood and accepted performance criteria. Douglass Colony Group has embraced its corporate and green building responsibilities. Our new main office has achieved LEED Silver certification and is the first LEED certified industrial building in Commerce City.
