U.S. Green Building Council
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Bob Grant Construction, Inc., was one of the first construction companies in Oregon to work on a U.S. Green Building Council – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) project.

According to the USGBC website, the core purpose of the council “is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.”

“Breakthroughs in building science, technology and operations are available to designers, builders and owners who want to build green and maximize both economic and environmental performance.
