Industry Certification in Building Construction and Performance

We are pleased to announce that Frederic Lilly, a construction manager at the Knickerbocker Group, has earned certification as a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP). The LEED green building certification is the foremost program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.

This certification recognizes the completion of a program designed to demonstrate a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles and the LEED Rating System. The U.S. Green Building Council established the LEED rating system to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. It is an internationally recognized certification providing third-party verification that a building or community was completed using strategies aimed at performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO 2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Please feel free to contact Fred at 207-633-3818 to discuss your construction or renovation project and how LEED standards can be applied.
