What is LEED?

At Wales McLelland Construction we believe we have a responsibility to consider how we, as an industrial/commercial builder and construction company, can do business every day to create a positive impact on our employees, the community, and the planet. A concern for sustainable building practices and environmental protection are at the forefront of every project, and we are continually proud to bring LEED™ and other green building projects to successful completion. We are a carbon neutral company and proud members of the Canada Green Building Council; whose mission is to lead and accelerate Canada’s transformation to high-performing, healthy, green buildings and communities.

Established in 1998, LEED™ is a rating system that sets environmental and sustainability standards for construction projects. It is an internationally recognized and respected system that provides a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable solutions for ‘green’ design, construction, operations, and maintenance. We have detailed knowledge of the LEED™ rating system from initial design and planning, through the construction phase, to post-construction testing and commissioning. We have successfully delivered several LEED™ certified buildings including: the LEED™ Gold Certified College of the Rockies in Cranbrook, BC; LEED™ Gold Certified BCGEU offices in Langley, BC; LEED™ Silver certified Frito Lay (Pepsico) in Surrey, BC; and a number of LEED™ Registered projects.
