Denver, CO — December 15, 2016
Ambient Energy is proud to announce that the Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) has designated Ambient Energy a LEED® Proven Provider™ for the LEED Building Design + Construction (LEED BD+C) rating system family. This designation was developed to streamline the LEED project review process for experienced organizations that demonstrate consistent excellence in administering LEED projects.
“Quality is at the core of the LEED certification process, and Ambient Energy has exhibited expertise in helping to bring healthy, high-performing buildings to the market,” said Doug Gatlin, vice president of program delivery, USGBC and GBCI. “The LEED Proven Provider model represents a great partnership between Ambient Energy and GBCI, because it allows GBCI to maintain a rigorous certification program and gives Ambient Energy the opportunity to deliver LEED projects to its clients faster.”
“We are thrilled to be officially recognized by GBCI as a LEED Proven Provider organization,” says Clayton Bartczak, Sustainability Team Leader at Ambient Energy. “After working on over 150 LEED projects, it is great to have formal recognition from GBCI that Ambient Energy consistently produces high quality LEED documentation for submission to GBCI. We are excited to take our partnership with USGBC and GBCI to the next level where we will continue to guide the design and construction industry on its path towards high performance, sustainable buildings.”
LEED Proven Provider is designed to encourage and reward high-quality LEED project submissions to minimize the need for additional work during the project review process. It represents an opportunity for Ambient Energy and LEED reviewers to work together to enhance the LEED certification experience, simultaneously allowing Ambient Energy to further invest in quality control and continuous improvement and allowing LEED reviewers more opportunities for direct engagement with and support for project teams.
