About Us - Sustainability

At New South, we understand the benchmarks that have been set for design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. We have experience in the five key areas (sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality) that are recognized by the
LEED® green building program.

One of the important aspects of the LEED program is the measuring and documentation of each building. The economic impact of each decision is very important in evaluating the specific LEED programs. As a builder, we have a very important role in the Materials and Resources section of LEED certification, which will involve handling of construction waste, material reuses, recycled content, local materials, and selection of materials.

New South has been involved and is currently involved in project deliveries that have set goals to achieve LEED and Earthcraft certifications. We currently have twenty-five in-house staff that are LEED Professionals and we are currently involved with several projects that are looking to achieve various LEED ratings. The following New South projects have received or are under review for LEED certification:
