All Atkore LEED Letters Updated to LEED Version 4


LEED, also known as “Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design”, is a green building certification program that recognizes building strategies and practices. There are different tiers of LEED certification such as Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum; the level of certification depends on how many points a project is able to obtain. As an incentive each level of LEED certification has a set of tax credits associated with it.

LEED certification means healthier, more productive places for us to live, learn, work and play, as well as less stress on the environment, by encouraging energy- and resource-efficient buildings. While project managers can pick and choose the credits they want to pursue, prerequisites set the minimum requirements that all buildings need to meet in order to achieve LEED certification.

The Industry Affairs team has reviewed and revised the LEED letters to reflect the most current information in LEED Version 4 (2016).  The letters are available on all business unit websites.
