Green Education and Consulting

Education is the key to a sustainably built environment, and a well-educated design and construction team can save a project a great deal of time and money. Breaking Ground Contracting provides education and consulting services, including LEED facilitation, to clients and project teams interested in sustainable construction. Our LEED Accredited Professionals participate in speaking engagements, panel discussions, presentations and seminars on green and LEED building. We provide training workshops for you, your employees and design team members so that your sustainable projects are successful. We have extensive experience with consulting on LEED buildings including LEED BD+C, LEED EBO+M and LEED for Homes projects. We can help you evaluate the benefits of high-performance building, the value of environmental stewardship and the real life-cycle cost savings achievable on sustainable projects. Call or email us today to discuss your training and consulting needs.

Your presentation provided a clear description of Green Building and LEED without being either high-browed or too basic to be beneficial. As always, your pleasant demeanor and excellent presentation skills make for a superior presentation.
