The construction company, Creative Contractors, hosted a tour of its building project at the USF St. Pete Campus on Dec. 9. The hosts provided an overview of USFâ€™s first LEED certified building. LEED is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a program that was started by the U.S. Green Building Council to encourage construction of ecofriendly buildings.
