At 3D, we welcome the challenge to responsibly use our global resources to meet our needs with the least impact on our environment. It is good for our environment. It is good for business. And it is essential to our shared future.
As a result, we are committed to sustainable development practices, leaving as many resources as possible for use by generations to come. The building aspect of sustainable development is commonly referred to as "building green."
For a building to meet the parameters of sustainable design, its plan and construction must include built-in design features and materials that enhance:
- Energy efficiency and renewable energy
- The safeguarding of water and water efficiency
- The conservation o materials and resources
- Indoor environmental quality
"Green" building and sustainable design does more than "house" a building or residential dwelling. It actually improves the local and global community.
Our people hold LEED Certification.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) — sets guidelines for developing high-performance and sustainable buildings. Through LEED certification, our people confirm that they are following these exacting guidelines.
It's a win-win for builders and those who partner with them: lowered energy operating costs, healthier indoor air quality, and potential tax rebates and zoning allowances.
