LEED Certification

Landmark Center is proud to announce that we have been certified LEED Gold. LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ certification. It designates environmentally responsible—sometimes referred to as ”green” or “sustainable”—commercial buildings designed, built and operated to optimally use the building location, minimize non-renewable energy use, reduce water consumption, while offering healthy settings in which to work and live. According to Mark Godfrey, AIA, LEED AP, with Pazdan-Smith Group Architects in Greenville, South Carolina: “LEED provides a way for all buildings claiming to be sustainable to be graded on a common scale—that way people are comparing apples to apples and no one is making false sustainability claims."
