LEED Certification

Building a Sustainable Future and Leading the Way

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. It is a holistic system that doesn’t simply focus on one building element, such as energy, water or health. Instead, it looks at the big picture, factoring in all critical elements that work together to create the best building possible. LEED v5 is the newest version of LEED. It marks a transformative milestone in the built environment’s alignment with a low-carbon future and addresses critical imperatives such as equity, health, ecosystems and resilience.

Owners and project teams choose LEED certification to inform, benchmark, and celebrate their sustainability goals and achievements. LEED’s framework – built on decades of expertise – empowers people to choose green options that align with their project’s vision and needs. LEED certification provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings, which offer environmental, social and governance benefits.

Here at Lance Kashian, we are currently pursuing certifications for The Tower Building and Park View Plaza on the newest version of LEED. It marks a transformative milestone in the built environment’s alignment with a low-carbon future and addresses critical imperatives such as equity, health, ecosystems and resilience. We plan to certify all our properties in the near future.

Smart Buildings

Smart buildings use technology to create a safe and comfortable environment while using resources efficiently and economically. They use hardware, software, and connectivity to communicate with subsystems, such as:
Heating and cooling, Energy, Lighting, Plumbing, Access control, Security.

Smart buildings have three main categories: consumer, commercial, and industrial.

Consumer, commercial and industrial smart buildings

Smart buildings use technology to create a safe and comfortable environment while using resources efficiently and economically. They use hardware, software, and connectivity to communicate with subsystems, such as:

  • Heating and cooling
  • Energy
  • Lighting
  • Plumbing
  • Access control
  • Security

Features of smart buildings include:

  • Sensors to monitor factors like indoor air quality, occupancy, and energy
  • A platform to access and visualize data
  • Building automation
  • Life safety
  • Telecommunications
  • User systems
  • Energy Management System (EMS)
  • Bipolar Ionization
  • Facility management systems

components of a smart building ecosystem

Smart buildings use artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to collect data from sensors, devices, systems, and services. This makes the building programmable and responsive to the needs of the users and the building manager.

  • IoT sensors
  • Analytics software
  • A user interface
  • A means of connectivity
