K-12 Educational Buildings

LEED for Schools is similar to LEED for New Construction, with additional requirements for environmental quality to provide enhanced learning environments for our children. SDC has been at the forefront of developing green building policies and guidelines for K-12 Educational facilities before LEED for Schools was created. Over a period of several years, SDC provided a variety of direct consulting services to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) in support of their emerging Green Building Program, including guideline development, review, updates for compliance with the new LEED for Schools rating system, and training for MCPS staff and contractors. In addition to providing guideline assistance, SDC has provided LEED process management and advisory services for more than 60 K-12 Educational facilities throughout the region.
