Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating SystemTM encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
LEED is a certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
Britton Electric has the expertise and is fully qualified to work on projects at all LEED certification levels. For these projects we incorporate LEED specifications in our proposals.
We are proud to have worked on numerous LEED projects including Les Pavillons Lassonde at Université de Montréal’s École Polytechnique. These were the first buildings in the province of Québec to follow this internationally recognized state-of-the-art construction.
Our most recent LEED projects include:
Library and Archives Canada / Bibliothèque et Archives Canada – Gold LEED Certification
