LEED FOR Homes • miller project 


The owner of this project had specific ideas on material, efficiency, and solar.  During the design process he had asked about getting a certification for green building.  The project required only minor changes to what the client had already set as goals to meet most environmental programs.  After reviewing the different options the owner selected LEED for Homes through the U.S Green Building Council.  The project achieved the highest rating of Platinum.
