Our Services : Sustainability

Greener Construction

We are committed to sustainability and have many LEED Accredited Professionals with the knowledge and skills to steward the LEED certification process.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, indicates a property’s overall sustainability by awarding points for just about any sustainable feature imaginable, from bike racks and rainwater reuse systems to energy-efficient lighting and plumbing fixtures. It is comprised of specific programs tailored to new buildings, existing buildings and tenant build-outs. There are different tiers of certification such as silver, gold or platinum.

As leaders in the green building industry, Knutson has built sustainable buildings of all types throughout the Midwest, from hospitals and laboratories to government and corporate office buildings.
