LEED projects address the entire lifecycle of a building. The USGBC's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program (LEED) is a voluntary, market-driven program that provides third party verification of green buildings.
In order for a project to meet LEED certification, the project must satisfy LEED requirements and also earn a minimum number of points. Millwork participation happens during the construction phase. The materials selection and their corresponding LEED points are applied to the Commercial Interiors certification.
Mission Bell has been involved with LEED from the very beginning. In fact, we were the millwork partner for the very first LEED Gold Certified project in California - the Hewlett Foundation Headquarters in Menlo Park. Because we do LEED and FSC® certified projects every day, we have developed an internal methodology that streamlines the process of capturing accurate and precise LEED product information. This allows us to provide the reports to our clients on a proactive and timely basis.
Mission Bell offers a comprehensive approach to partnering with our customers. We make it easy for our clients to make material selections that satisfy LEED criteria and hold up well over time.

Elizabeth (Magaña) LaBruzzo, EIT, LEED GA, Swinerton Builders "Thanks Marsha! This is by far the most complete and straightforward millwork LEED package I have ever seen! Thank you so much for all your help with this. The FSC® credit is my least favorite credit because of all the work that goes into gathering the documentation on my end most of the time. Having said that, it is very valuable to have a subcontractor who understands this credit so well and gathers all the information ahead of time!"
