LEED & Green Building
Here at Merritt, we take the same approach to green building that we take to every other aspect of our business. It’s a long-term view and, with resources in dwindling supply, that vision is more relevant now than ever. We have learned to balance environmental concerns and commercial use with the specific needs of each clients’ business. As a natural evolution of our long-standing commitment to simply building a better building, Merritt has embraced the emergence of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System.
We have the expertise to guide your green building project and help you develop a healthier, more sustainable work environment. With a focus on innovation, flexibility and collaboration, we are well versed in leading-edge technical practices related to green building. Furthermore, we are continually identifying and testing emerging technologies for use in both new and existing projects.
Merritt’s portfolio contains the first LEED Core & Shell Platinum building in the Baltimore metropolitan area, two additional LEED Platinum buildings, three LEED Gold buildings, one LEED-EB O&M Gold building, one LEEED-EB O&M Silver building and twenty additional projects in various states of LEED certification intended for a minimum of Silver certification. Furthermore, Merritt currently employs five LEED Accredited Professionals and five Green Globe Professionals.
