Baltimore, Maryland – July 12, 2019 – Brightview Senior Living has been named Outstanding Developer by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) as a part of the LEED Homes Awards, an annual honor celebrating residential projects, developers and builders using LEED to improve quality of life for residents, reduce a building’s impact on the environment, and create healthier and more resilient communities. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the world’s most widely used green building rating system. Recipients represent multi-family, single-family, and affordable housing projects and companies that participated in LEED in 2018.
“LEED is known for setting the highest standards for the sustainability and performance of buildings, and it plays an even more important role when it’s applied to our personal spaces – our homes,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC. “We are seeing more and more homeowners, and builders make the important decision to pursue LEED, and USGBC is committed to continue building on the success of the residential market.”
The winners of the LEED Homes Awards include multi-family, single-family, and affordable housing projects and companies who utilized innovative and effective sustainability methods in residential spaces in 2018.
