Welcome to the Green Center - Your LEED Fire Station Design Resource
Building green often is thought of as more expensive and less profitable, but sustainable design can provide financial rewards for fire departments. Green buildings typically have lower annual costs for energy, water, maintenance and other operating expenses. Studies also have shown sustainable building features can promote better health, comfort, well-being and productivity in building occupants.
FIRE CHIEF's Green Center guides you through the Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) certification program — the preeminent standards for site selection, water and energy efficiency, materials used and indoor environmental quality.
