LEED is one of the many facets of the Sustainability Movement and the benchmark for which "green" buildings are measured against. LEED is gradually becoming the standard for newly constructed and existing buildings. Additionally, LEED is expanding to incorporate commercial interiors, core and shell structures, residential, and neighbourhood developments. As a contractor, CANA Construction recognizes that sustainability is the future and understands the need to be involved in the "green" process.
