Green Building:
What it Means
LEED Certification

LEED Certification

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ promotes green building practices and LEED certification provides independent, third-party confirmation that a building project meets nationally recognized green building standards.

The Perelman Center provides the best possible working and healing environment for staff and patients. It benefits the community by conserving resources, reducing carbon dioxide emissions and encouraging environmental stewardship.

From its initial construction phase, the Perelman Center has been environmentally friendly. During demolition of the previous site, more than 90 percent of the debris—over 20,000 tons—was recycled. Other important features include the use of recycled materials and locally manufactured materials in order to preserve natural resources, support of the local economy and reduce fuel use and pollution from transportation.
