The minimum number of points needed for certification is 26.  Using PolySteel can help achieve up to 20 LEED points depending upon the nature and scope of the construction project.


LEED is the only nationally recognized green building rating system and evaluates the performance of buildings from a “whole building” perspective.  It provides project developers a checklist of criteria by which a building can be judged in six categories, including Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation & Design.  The largest point-generating category is Energy & Atmosphere. There are four possible ratings: LEED Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.  A gold-rated building is estimated to have reduced its environmental impact by 50% compared with an equivalent conventional building.
