LEED for Homes

Print Version PDF File

Thank you for considering Fleetwood as a partner in your LEED project. The U.S. Green Building Council's LEED®(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)Green Building Rating SystemTM provides third party validation that a home has been designed and built to promote sustainabililty. LEED certification is a voluntary and rigorous process and measures the overall performance of a home in eight categories. LEED can be applied to both commercial and residential buildings and at any point during the building lifecycle. Individual building components themselves are not individually certified, but they can contribute to the points awarded to the project.

Fleetwood products can assist with LEED credits in the categories below.
