LEED the Way

Building Science

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. As a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council, BMC offers products and materials that contribute toward LEED points and prerequisites.

The Writing is on the Non-Load-Bearing Wall

Demand for greener products in home building and remodeling continues to
