What is LEED?

LEED is an internationally-recognized green building certification program.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is intended to provide structure owners and operators with a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED promotes sustainable building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.


Specify Big R steel bridges and earn LEED points

You can earn LEED points by specifying Big R steel bridges and asking us for a recycle content certification. Most of Big R’s structures are built with steel that has more than 75% recycled content. This gives you maximum credit in categories 4.1 and 4.2.
