Green Building

Auld & White is a leader in green building in Northeast Florida. We are committed to preserving our environment and resources by building sustainably. In fact, Auld & White completed the first school on the East Coast certified under the LEED® for Schools rating system, and the first LEED Silver certified Credit Union in Florida. Most recently Auld & White completed the Animal Care & Protective Services facility, the City of Jacksonville’s first LEED Gold certified building.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a national rating system maintained by the U.S. Green Building Council. The rating system measures how green a building is through an integrated, holistic approach and weighted point system.

Buildings use more primary energy, and therefore cause more carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, than the transportation sector. Specifically, buildings use 40% of the nation’s primary energy, consume 72% of the electricity, create 39% of the CO2 emissions, and guzzle 13.6% of the potable water. LEED not only makes buildings more energy and water efficient, but also promotes the use of reused and recycled local materials, reduces the impact on the actual site, and enhances indoor environmental quality.
