InteriorLOGIC SUSTAINABILITY & GREEN DESIGN

Green Design

LEED® V4 Accredited Professional

InteriorLOGIC is committed to the pursuit of sustainable building practices and environmental resilience in our projects. We encourage our clients to consider sustainable design and construction standards in design strategies. Sustainable design is an extended, complete life cycle approach that incorporates the environmental impacts from design to demolition and includes sustainable practice recommendations for building tenants.

InteriorLOGIC has shown a commitment to sustainable practices with our in-house LEED® Accredited Professionals and our certified and registered LEED® projects.

The introduction of sustainable architecture and design (often called Green Building) builds on a foundation of conservation and global responsibility. Sustainable building projects conserve by reducing energy, water, and mineral consumption and minimizing waste. But sustainable architecture extends beyond the building’s footprint because oftentimes are used as educational beacons and inspiration for further environmentally conscious pursuits.

It’s our goal to suggest reasonable, cost-managed solutions to meet sustainability goals. We incorporate environmentally resilient materials in building designs and consider the embodied energy of building products.

If LEED® certification is not a goal, we still supply environmentally conscious options with positive lifetime investment returns.

What is LEED® Certification?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design. The system is credit-based, allowing projects to earn points for environmentally friendly actions taken during construction and use of a building. LEED was launched in an effort to develop a “consensus-based, market-driven rating system to accelerate the development and implementation of green building practices.” The program is not rigidly structured; not every project must meet identical requirements to qualify.

These LEED products are currently available:

LEED – v3.0 for New Construction and Major Renovations
LEED – for Homes
LEED – for Core and Shell
LEED – for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintanance
LEED – for Commercial Interiors
LEED – for Schools
LEED – for Retail
LEED – for Healthcare
LEED – for Neighborhood Development (in pilot stage)

 

Sustainability in Design

Functional and Lasting Solutions

The natural and environmental impact of interior architecture and design practice is immense. We’ve had to adapt the way we work and relearn lessons from the past.

Contrary to many misconceptions, sustainable design can be sophisticated and stylish. And by its nature, a sustainable approach means considering the whole life cycle of a project and therefore improving the functionality, quality, human enjoyment and, in the long term, bringing real social and economic benefits.

At InteriorLOGIC sustainable practices complement our design ideas knowing full-well we have a responsibility for tomorrow in what we do today.
