At Weitz, we understand that green building practices can substantially reduce operating costs, enhance building marketability, increase worker productivity and reduce negative impacts on the environment. We are committed to the promotion of sustainable design and construction practices on all of our projects – whether or not they are attempting to achieve LEED certification. Weitz works with the owner, design team, subcontractors, and suppliers to make the best sustainable decisions, all the while balancing initial and life cycle costs.
As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Weitz fully supports the consensus-based LEED Certification rating systems as the construction industry standard. Weitz has completed all levels of LEED certified buildings throughout the United States, including Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield Headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa, the largest commercial office building in the world to achieve LEED Platinum Certification. Weitz has 132 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff ready to help you achieve your sustainability goals.
