Product vetting for LEED, WELL, and beyond
Is your team working on a LEED v4 or WELL project? Finding products for these projects is daunting. You have to know exactly what to look for and, even when you find products, it can take hours of research to make sure they actually meet requirements.
BuildingGreen handles the minutiae so you can focus on design
Searching for hundreds of hours in all the different categories is a waste of your time. We’ve already done the work, so we know what to look for and what to watch out for in every category.
We can build you a master list of compliant and preferred products based on the products you’re spec’ing. This list will meet your current project’s needs and also be a tool you can keep returning to in future projects.
Anne Harney of Long Green Specs is our partner and can review your specifications to ensure you’ve got everything right. Anne is a licensed Architect with over 30 years experience and a Certified Construction Specifier (CSI CCS).
A TOOL TO RE-USE IN FUTURE PROJECTS
We can work with you to generate beautiful, compelling posters and PDFs that provide at-a-glance guidance for each product category, based on your own priorities and preferred vendors.
We can do more than that, too
- Add improved building products to your master list that perform at the same or higher levels, with equivalent cost availability, and have the disclosure documentation or other attributes that qualify them to meet LEED, Living Building, or WELL requirements.
- Review your specifications for appropriate language to assure sustainability goals are realized.
- Suggest additional documents that will help ensure smooth, accurate submittals.

What our customers are saying:
“Nadav was instrumental in making material vetting an integral part of our design process for our LEED Platinum project for the University of Maryland. His measured approach helped us make important decisions as they relate to prioritizing material selection—getting the biggest benefit from what is often a limited pool of resources.”
