LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)

Leed Logo

LEED Phases do not directly correlate to the traditional architectural project phases; however, there are distinct overlaps in the planning and execution of a LEED project. As with all rating systems LEED requires large amounts of forms, proof, verification, narratives, and documents to be submitted for final review. Coordinating what is due and when is a large task that can add unwanted time and cost to the scope of a project. LEED is not just about designing and constructing green buildings. LEED is a certification process that requires a high level of communication and documentation. To ensure the success of your application, it is recommended to begin working with a LEED Accredited Professional as your LEED Consultant as early as possible in the design process. For maximum LEED credits, the project earns a LEED credit for hiring a LEED AP Consultant.

Florida Water Star Residential & Commercial Certifier-Florida Water StarSM

Florida Water Star Residential & Commercial Certification Management

Florida Water Star

The certification program is designed to increase water efficiency in landscapes, irrigation systems and indoor uses. Florida Water Star is designed to provide beautiful landscapes and ample water usage... despite droughts and increasingly scare water. Drought tolerant landscaping coupled with thoughtful irrigation make outstanding yards virtually immune to drought and watering restriction. Carefully chosen plumbing fixtures meet your family's needs with less water.

DBGI serves as the Florida Water Star Certifying Agent and provides third-party inspections. We will be responsible for consulting with builders and developers to help them achieve their Florida Water Star residential certifications.

Florida Water StarSM can be effectively integrated into projects along with other programs such as ENERGY STAR®, the Florida Green Building Coalition's (FGBC) green standards, and the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED program.

While many certification programs provide general guidelines for water efficiency, Florida Water StarSM is noticeably more detailed and relevant to Florida's unique conditions, and can therefore further enhance the effectiveness of other green certification programs.Make sure that your new Green Project is everything that you want it to be!
