LEED / Sustainable Design

Northland Consulting Engineers supports sustainable design in all our work. We have extensive experience designing for LEED compliance as well as designing for the support of alternative energy systems such as roof-top wind, roof-top solar or ground mount solar and wind. Our experience with fly-ash cement, recycled content products such as light-gage steel members and other products can help you meet your goals.

Sustainable structural design is when the design is:
  • Highly efficient, accurate design
  • Using products manufactured close to the site
  • Utilize recycled content in our members where possible / practical
  • Maximize the expected useful life of the structure
  • Minimize maintenance
