What to Know Before Starting Work on a Green Building
April 3, 2009

“Are we ready to build green?” That is the big question facing many of today’s building owners, designers and developers. They may want to build green, but might not be sure how to start a project down that path. “Building green can seem like a daunting proposition, since sustainable technology is a large, constantly evolving body of knowledge,” said Stephen Lamb, Executive Vice President of the Mechanical Contractors Association (MCA) of Greater Chicago. “Fortunately, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System can provide valuable guidance. Building professionals interested in building green should look into LEED and ultimately, strive to become LEED Accredited Professionals.”

To help member contractors to understand the LEED rating system, MCA of Greater Chicago has released a booklet entitled, “Thinking About Building LEED?” Copies of the booklet have been printed on recycled paper, but member contractors can also receive the booklet in a paper-free electronic format.
