LEED Certification Reviews for GBCI

Client: Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI)
Year: Ongoing
Project Overview:
When a project wants to get LEED certified, the project team must submit documentation to demonstrate compliance with all of the prerequisite/credit requirements. That documentation, for all projects except those in Canada, is submitted to the GBCI for certification. The documentation is reviewed by a variety of reviewers for compliance and certification is awarded.

Lunchbox’s Role:
We are responsible for reviewing projects for certification, and deciding which credits and prerequisites have, or have not, met the requirements. Only really experienced individuals across North America get to do this kind of work! We decide for the projects that we review whether they meet the requirements for certification. Our expertise in interpreting prerequisite/credit requirements is what we are hired for.

Three H Corporate Sustainability and ‘level’ certification

Client: Three H
Year: Ongoing
Location: New Liskeard, ON
Project Overview:
Three H is a furniture manufacturer based in New Liskeard, ON. As more and more manufacturers move towards making their products more sustainable, Three H wanted to ensure that they were also moving in this direction. They were looking to know how their products fit into the LEED framework, and to develop a sustainability action plan for their business as a whole. This initial work has led them to continue to work towards achieving various aspects of that sustainability plan and to explore ‘level’ certification for their products.

Lunchbox’s Role:
Lunchbox facilitated the process with the management team and developed key corporate policies related to Three H’s corporate sustainability. In addition, Lunchbox developed the action plan that is being used by the organization as they move forward. We also produced a feasibility study with regards to ‘level’ certification and are in the process of working with Three H to move this work forward.
