LEED has developed and implemented the National “green” building standards for all construction. The LEED standards are applied through the 40,000 LEED approved professionals and architects.

SUSTAINABLE, HEALTHY, EARTH-FRIENDLY FLOORING PRODUCTS. Architects are “ looking for a better way” : Architects are “ looking for a better way” At the inception of LEED one standard for Green building existed. Today there are over 60 and the number is growing. The cost of understanding the new LEED requirements is increasing and costs continue to rise. The ever changing LEED standards are very confusing, increasingly complex and very time consuming to implement. Architectural companies, LEED AP’s, builders and contractors are spending too much money on LEED compliance and are “looking for a better way”. There is disconnect between architects and an easy method of accessing certified green products. Architects are becoming very wary of green claims and are looking for better information to support their product selection. The industry realizes that an easier, more reliable and faster solution needs to be developed in order to encourage future green building. In the green building market, there is a lot of frustration and architects are spending their time trying to gather accurate product data while manufacturers find their sales teams tied up trying to resolve environmental concerns.
