LEED - Green Government Incentives
Reduction - Efficiency - Sustainability


Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Green Building Rating System™


The  Canada Green Building Council  (CaGBC) has embarked upon a multi-year development project to introduce guidelines and benchmarks for new developments and renovations to existing buildings, to enable large-scale reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, energy savings, and other environmental benefits for all building types and communities across Canada.

LEED  is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. It provides building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their building's performance.

LEED  promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: Sustainable Site Development, Water Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Materials Selection and Indoor Environmental Quality.

Lachance Construction  fully supports the initiatives of  LEED  and welcomes inquiries regarding the development of new projects, the retrofitting of existing buildings and obtaining certifications through the program.

The  Ministry of Natural Resources Fire Management Facility  in Hearst is the first  LEED  project we completed, and is also distinguished as the first  LEED  project completed in North Eastern Ontario.
