Marc Truant & Associates’ leadership role in sustainable building practices results in another LEED certification for a Truant project

For the second time within a year, one of the company’s building projects was awarded LEED certification. The LEED®-CI certification was awarded to the 6,400 square foot office headquarters of Gravestar, Inc. by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED-CI certification acknowledges commercial interior building. Last year, another Truant project received the First LEED Silver certification for a home in metropolitan Boston.

The LEED-CI certification for Gravestar, Inc. recognizes the innovative and environmentally-sustainable building solutions incorporated throughout the office space, such as bamboo millwork, cork floors and countertops containing recycled glass, and skylights over common areas that maximize natural light. The project also included complete window replacement with energy efficient double glazed windows, lo-voc painting and solvents, as well as a new roof deck in full ADA-compliance. LEED is a program administered by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) setting national standards for green building design. The rating system was developed by the USGBC to promote environmentally friendly design and to reduce misleading and exaggerated environmental claims.

Marc Truant & Associates, Inc. has taken a leadership role in the building community for their sustainable construction practices. The company partners with clients and architects, who share this commitment to creating environmentally ‘healthy’ buildings. The project managers are LEED® Accredited Professionals and Marc Truant & Associates is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
