Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, or LEED, is a certification program for architects to certify their designs based on different rating-scales that indicate how well their work meets stringent standards for being eco-friendly. Professionals can also obtain credentials to showcase their knowledge, activism, experience and credibility towards the design of buildings and structures that meet LEED requirements.
SLAY & The Environment
SLAY consistently provides ecologically-minded designs by incorporating building materials that are low maintenance, offering energy efficiency, are economical and provide for smart growth. Our strategies balance cost/benefits of materials while maintaining a commitment to reduce environmental impact by incorporating sustainable features in building design and construction.
Reducing environmental impact by utilizing renewable energy sources, increasing energy performance and creating the next generation of super-efficient buildings is a responsibility we hold as stewards of our natural systems and creators of our built environment.
Our dedication to sustainable architecture is evident in the re-purposing of our own building. Formerly the City Hall for Balcones Heights, our office boasts moveable walls, under floor air/data systems, solar energy, recycling programs, and xeriscaping.
