The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is a badge of honor many customers want to earn. Not only is green design good for the environment, it’s also good for business because it helps reduce a facility’s operating costs.
The aim of sustainable construction is to produce facilities, products and services in a way that reduces the use of non-renewable resources, minimizes environmental impact and relates people with the natural environment. Gray’s team of LEED®-accredited architects, engineers and construction professionals help our customers plan and implement sustainable design strategies in their LEED® construction projects. This team works with the design and construction team to evaluate LEED® credits and manage the documentation process to ensure successful certification of the project.
Ranked second among the top green contractors in manufacturing plant construction by ENR Magazine (September 2012), Gray is poised and committed to accommodate our customers' needs for sustainable design and support their goal of being environmentally responsible corporate citizens.

The era of sustainable building in the construction industry is continually growing and changing. The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System has undergone many revisions to include new technology and additional standards to place emphasis on priorities such as energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.
Incorporating elements of LEED® design in new construction projects is a priority for Gray and our customers. At Gray, sustainable building isn’t just a trend that we want to follow, it’s our mindset and our obligation to reduce the use of non-renewable resources and minimize the impact of construction on the environment.
