LEED Certification

What Is LEED?

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:

  • Sustainable Site Development
  • Water Savings
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Materials Selection
  • Indoor Environmental Quality

Buildings attain LEED certification by submitting an application that documents compliance with the established requirements. LEED is a point based system and based on the number of points or credits earned, a building may achieve Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum LEED status. Integrated Pest Management practices influence two LEED credit categories: Sustainable Site Development and Indoor Environmental Quality.

How LEED Relates To Pest Control

Companies earn LEED credits by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles to follow LEED certification guidelines. A carefully developed IPM program controls and prevents pests by implementing common sense measures that deter pest activity.

Schendel technicians are IPM Specialists who use information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment to minimize pest activity. We manage pest infestations and the damage they cause by utilizing the most economical means with the least possible impact on people, property and the environment. Schendel will only use the materials necessary to target the pest, eliminate the source and take care of your pest control problem.

Schendel Helps Local Businesses Achieve LEED Certification

Architects, construction managers, engineers, facility managers, interior designers, landscape architects and real estate professionals all use LEED to help create sustainable sites while state and local governments across the country are adopting LEED for public-owned and public-funded buildings. Several federal agencies have LEED initiatives in place, as well.  Schendel Pest Services’ IPM protocols are designed to support building owners seeking LEED certification. We realize that becoming a green building has environmental and economic benefits and can also improve the health and well being of our local communities. Green buildings:

  • Improve air and water quality
  • Conserve natural resources
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Improve employee productivity
  • Enhance occupant health
  • Increase quality of life
Schendel Pest has the experience to help your building earn LEED credits. Contact us today for more information on LEED certification.

Derek always shows up when he says he will, and explains what he did while he was here. I appreciate the extras like putting on booties before he enters our home, and always asking if I've noticed any issues. He is knowledgeable, professional and polite, and for that reason I always recommend Schendel Pest to my friends and neighbors.
