We also understand the LEED for Healthcare rating system,and can design more sustainable healthcare projects that minimize energy consumption by maximizing efficiency.
According to the USGBC: “The needs of healthcare facilities are very unique. Healthcare buildings often have strict regulatory requirements, 24/7 operations, and specific programmatic demands are not covered in LEED for New Construction. The LEED for Healthcare rating system acknowledges these differences by both modifying existing credits and creating new, healthcare-specific credits. The goal is to help promote healthful, durable, affordable, and environmentally sound practices in these projects.
LEED for Healthcare is geared towards inpatient and outpatient care facilities and licensed long term care facilities. It can also be used for medical offices, assisted living facilities and medical education and research centers.
Projects that meet certain criteria are required to use LEED for Healthcare. These include licensed and federal inpatient and outpatient care facilities and licensed long term care facilities.”
