What Is LEED® for Homes?
LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. It’s a point-based system that takes a holistic approach by including mandatory requirements and points in categories, such as:
- Location and Transportation
- Sustainable Sites
- Water Efficiency
- Energy and Atmosphere
- Materials and Resources
- Indoor Environmental Quality
Why should LEED Certification be a goal? Certification not only demonstrates leadership, innovation, and environmental stewardship, but it also gives building owners and operators the tools they need to improve building performance and their bottom line. LEED is the most widely-known green building program, sought after by many homebuyers and renters who are willing to pay a premium.
At Green Insight, we know the support you need to achieve LEED Certification and we can get you on the fast track to certifying all of your future projects. In addition, a home’s LEED certification has been shown to increase the appraisal value of your home.

We can make sure your design or construction can pass the rigorous standards for energy-efficient status the first time around. Take a look at our services below.
Our project success
We view client relationships as a partnership that results in buildings optimized for energy efficiency that are more profitable to own, rent, or sell. And are better for their residents and the environment. In this portfolio, you will find some of the projects we’ve completed and the clients who’ve partnered with us over the years.
What our clients are saying
“Green Insight is always available on-site and in real-time. Their ability to turn things around and keep a project on track distinguishes GI from competitors. They are also creative and willing to roll with the punches. In my world, things don’t always work out perfectly but the team at Green Insight is always open to finding creative solutions to figure out the most timely, cost-efficient way to resolve issues.”
Project Manager, Pavilion Construction
“Green Insight’s team is responsive, available, and provides a tremendous sense of security. We recently had a project where the goalposts changed quickly and often during the approval process. We were able to get our project approved, but I honestly don’t know how that would have gone if we didn’t have the backup and knowledge that Green Insight provided.”
Director of Development, Landmark Homes
“When it comes to green energy consultants, Green Insight takes the stress away like no other. They bring an unbeatable combination of value-engineering, industry knowledge, and out-of-the-box creativity for solutions that work. What I value most about working with Green Insight is the relationship – which is more like a partnership that has been one of the key drivers in our success. They take the stress away. And frankly, this has been the best relationship that I’ve had with somebody in this business.”
Owner, Trailhead Homes
