Green buildings provide economic benefits to developers, owners and occupants. Triumph Modular offers options for building with appropriate design materials and process that is favorably inclined to meet national Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system, such as:
- Superior building envelopes that prevents unwanted air movement
- Sensitive HVAC design that is sized properly
- Use of non-toxic or recycled content
- Using water and energy efficiently
- Maximizing natural lighting
LEED® is the rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The system evaluates and recognizes performance in accepted green design categories utilizing proven technologies. LEED® emphasizes a whole-building approach that provides collaborative and integrated design and construction processes and optimizes environmental and economic factors.
LEED® provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED® emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. LEED® recognizes achievements and promotes expertise in green building through a comprehensive system including project certification, professional accreditation, training and practical resources.
Because modular buildings are constructed in a factory controlled environment, materials are protected from the environmental elements, reducing the potential for moisture being trapped in the building materials. This process of construction is also proving to be a safer alternative to on-site construction.
