LEED building in NYC

On today’s WMNF 88.5 FM Sustainable Living Program we talked about Green Buildings. Our first guest recently wrote an article in the Home Power Magazine titled “The Living Building Challenge". Juliet Grable states that LBC goes beyond US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Standards. We also had local accredited professional LEED Architect John Garland talk more about the LEED process and some of the projects he’s been involved in. John works for ROJO Architecture in Tampa. LEED certification & LBC are both voluntary; but LBC goes a lot farther to address all aspects of green building and changing the rules for earth friendly structures.
