LEEDing GREEN building by example. HARDAWAY offers a team of LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals with experience constructing LEED™ Certified or Sustainable buildings, and members of the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED™ is a rating system for buildings that was designed to guide and distinguish high performance buildings that have less of an impact on the environment, are healthier for those who work and/or live in the building, and are more profitable than their conventional counterparts. LEED™ is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.
HARDAWAY recently completed the Upper Cumberland Regional Health Facility for the State of Tennessee which is Certified LEED™ Platinum. HARDAWAY also completed the first LEED™ Gold Certified Educational Facility in the State of Tennessee, the Vanderbilt University Commons Dining Center. This represents Tennessee's second LEED™ Gold Certified building across the state. Other LEED™ projects completed include FRANKE Corporate Office & Warehouse Complex in Smyrna, Tennessee which achieved Silver LEED™ Certification, and Gardner Hills Elementary School at Fort Campbell, Kentucky which achieved SPiRiT Level Silver (Military Green Building Certification). Our experience with these outstanding projects strengthens our ability to support sustainable design and construction practices.
