LEED Silver Building
REI Oklahoma’s building is part of a growing “green” movement in construction. The complex is REI Oklahoma’s first LEED-certified building and is the first LEED building in southern Oklahoma. LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a certification program of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Our LEED Silver facility is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program. It features energy efficient building systems, sustainable building materials, a metal roof, high efficiency plumbing, water efficient landscaping, recycled building materials and low-VOC paints, sealants, adhesives and carpets were used in the construction of the building. See brochure for detailed info.
LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED addresses the entire lifecycle of a building.
LEED-certified buildings are designed to:
- Lower operating costs & increase asset value
- Reduce waste sent to landfills
- Conserve energy and water
- Be healthier and safer for occupants
- Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
- Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities
