Working with Arch-Con was a great experience. We felt like one, there was very open communication between us as clients as them as a builder. In addition to that, we felt that they actually exceeded expectations. We had seen the drawings that the architect had put forward, but to bring that to life and exceed what you think in your mind that it’s going to be is a very, very pleasant thing.

Arch-Con has been a terrific resource to me and my clients for building out interiors of office buildings. They’re always trustworthy, they’re always responsive and they always do a really, really nice job.

Jon Lee, Senior Vice President, CBRE

For me it’s the relationship. I know that if they tell me something, it’s the real deal. That’s important to me. With anything that you don’t know much about, you want someone you can trust doing it.

Asif Dakri, CEO, Wallis State Bank

I am in complete awe of your entire team. I am so grateful for each and everyone of you and your parts in this project. Surely you understand that this would not have been possible without each of you. The looks that I have seen on client’s faces today are simply priceless. You have created something truly special. I will never be able to say thank you enough.

Jourdan Ellis, Capital Campaign Manager, Pursuit for Those with Disabilities

Because they are executing our ideas, the degree of trust, cooperation and collaboration must be very high. I have absolute faith in Arch-Con to deliver.

LEED Expertise

With extensive experience in sustainable construction and the LEED process, Arch-Con can help you determine if LEED is right for your project and which level of certification best suits your project’s goals.

th-leedWhat is LEED? LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is redefining the way we think about the places where we live, work and learn. As an internationally recognized mark of excellence, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. With 10 billion square feet of building space participating in the suite of rating systems and 1.5 million feet certifying per day around the world, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed and operated.

What types of commercial projects can use LEED? LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types and works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout and significant retrofit.

LEED rating systems address the following commercial and institutional projects in these categories:

  • New Construction & Major Renovations
  • Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance
  • Core & Shell
  • Commercial Interiors
  • Retail: New Construction
  • Retail: Commercial Interiors
  • Schools
  • Healthcare

How does LEED work? LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health:

  • Sustainable site development
  • Water savings
  • Energy efficiency
  • Materials selection
  • Indoor environmental quality

Arch-Con is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a nonprofit organization focused on changing they way buildings are designed, built and operated through education, advocacy, education and initiatives.
