LEED for Homes Provider

As part of our commitment to providing industry-leading services, support, and education, BER is proud to be a USGBC accredited LEED for Homes (LFH) Provider. This furthers our mission to bring both HERS Rating Provider and Green Rating Provider categories under one roof. This accreditation allows BER to offer streamlined services, tech support and quality assurance, which will equal time and money savings for BER’s HERS and Green Raters.

 

About LEED for Homes

LEED for Homes is a voluntary, points-based green building certification system developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) that was launched in the early 2000s. LEED-certified homes are designed and built to address not only energy efficiency, but additional key conservation criteria such as water and material usage, indoor air quality, landscape, and community. LEED for Homes certification demands attention to detail and an engaged, experienced team.
