Sustainable development is the foundation of LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a third-party certification program that consists of building and industry-specific rating systems to encourage and promote sustainable property development and green building practices. LEED provides a benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. The LEED program is based on a "whole-building" approach to sustainability. The program measures and recognizes performance related to human and environmental health in terms of sustainable site development, water and energy efficiency, selection of materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.
BMG's multi-discipline team of LEED Accredited Professionals has worked on various aspects of the LEED Certification process from product registration and management through to the provision of technical expertise on LEED Credits.
BMG provides sustainable consulting and engineering services that help reduce operational costs and a building’s overall environmental impact. Our engineers are trained and accredited on implementing the recognized standard for green building, LEED. Green building techniques not only help provide for a building’s high performance, they also help improve the overall safety and comfort of its occupants. Green buildings are more productive for their users, more valuable strategic assets for their owners, and more widely recognized and appreciated by local communities.
Considering that HVAC alone consumes 50% of a commercial building’s resources, it’s vitally important the MEP engineers are trained and recognized for their expertise employing best practices and compliance with recognized sustainability certifications and standards. To meet these increasing demands for LEED related services, BMG employs a staff of LEED Accredited Professionals who are comprehensively trained to advise our clients to oversee and manage the LEED Administration.
LEED Consulting and Sustainability Consulting Solutions:

We provide consultation, guidance and complete project management to ensure that your project meets LEED standards that have been certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC.) Our accredited professionals can provide guidance ranging from energy efficient design to complete LEED project administration. Our engineers are experienced in anticipating energy demands, defining performance requirements of a potential new structure, and retrofitting facilities.
We partner with you in LEED administration so you can reach your goals through a variety of sustainable consulting services including: building information modeling (BIM), energy auditing, LEED administration consulting, renewable energy, sustainable energy engineering and sustainable planning. We also offer consultations on projects designed by other MEP engineers, in order to make them as sustainable, energy efficient and environmentally conscious as possible. Our LEED Administration expertise has taught us that each project can achieve significant energy savings through thoughtful decision making and allocation of resources.
Through our knowledge base of LEED administration, we can help turn your sustainable goals into long-lasting value that enhances the community and your bottom line.
