Sustainable Engineering – Delivering Better Buildings

LEED –OM (Operation and Maintenance) is a particular building rating system developed by the USGBC intended for application specifically for the methods of operation and maintenance of existing commercial buildings.  It rewards sustainable operation through demonstrating energy efficiency in practice, water conservation, sourcing best practices and providing a quality indoor environment.  It provides the potential for building owners and managers to achieve a LEED certification for their building, based more on their actions more than on capital intensive retrofits.
