LEED for Commercial
Desert Star Construction is committed to demonstrating that green building is a standard all commercial construction has the ability to meet. Many projects, such as the 2009 renovation of El Chorro Lodge-Arizona’s first ever full-service LEED Gold certified restaurant-use the Integrated Project Delivery approach to incorporate green practices property-wide. Through our Sustainability Measurements and Retrofit Testing (SMART) service, we also evaluate buildings and outline opportunities to optimize resource use and minimize operations costs. These strategies can reduce or eliminate electric bills and decrease water use by 50 percent or more. A member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), we strive to continually educate our staff and clients on ways to reduce our environmental impact and proudly stay at the forefront of the rapidly advancing green industry.
