Architects, developers lean on green consultants

August 27, 2008 12:49PM

Local and state governments are increasingly starting to require LEED-certification for public projects, so many architects and developers are using consultants from the Green Buildings Council to learn about the process and guidelines. In 2006, the council had just 679 consultants, which had grown to 1,590 as of July this year. In 2005, 404 buildings met LEED standards, and midway through this year 1,705 buildings were LEED-certified.
