LEED®

Building for the Future


Beaubois has always been a leader in all of its business segments, and the LEED® projects are no exception. We are increasingly committed to the construction of green buildings. In fact, our success in this field is garnering a growing number of mandates for projects of this type every year.

The LEED® system, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the international benchmark for designing, constructing and operating high performance green buildings.

Compliance with LEED® standards translates into the use of design and construction practices that reduce the negative impact of buildings on occupants and the environment.

LEED® Objectives:


  • To improve the building's environmental and economic performance
  • To promote the use of proven and innovative practices, standards and technologies
  • To increase the well-being of occupants
  • To improve the quality of the environment in the whole community

The LEED® Rating System


The LEED® system was developed by the United States Green Building Council and is the most used building environmental rating system in the world. It is specifically intended for designing, constructing, operating and certifying sustainable buildings throughout the world.

Levels of Certification


LEED® uses a scoring system to evaluate a building's environmental performance. There are four levels of LEED® certification:

  • Certified
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum

In Canada, the exclusive authority for implementing the LEED® Green Building Rating System is the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC).

LEED® recognizes performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:


  • Sustainable sites
  • Water efficiency
  • Energy and atmosphere
  • Materials and resources *
  • Indoor environmental quality *

* Beaubois is earning points in these categories.
