The primary consensus industry standard for determining the sustainable or "green" attributes of a given design is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification Process, developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and now administered by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). GRW is actively involved in USGBC both on a national and local level, and we have LEED Accredited Professional in key disciplines (architecture, electrical, mechanical, structural, sanitary and civil). Named a Top Green Design Firm by Engineering News-Record, as well as a Top Green Building Engineering Firm by Building Design + Construction, GRW has implemented environmentally focused and sustainable design concepts into a wide range of projects including the Federal Bureau of Prisons' first LEED Silver Federal Correctional Institution, a 624,312 SF complex near Aliceville, AL.
