“Wishful Thinking” leads to LEED Gold!

SMP design & SMP construction recently completed the design-build of a contemporary home in Northside that was officially certified as LEED Gold today. “Wishful Thinking” was the tongue-in-cheek nickname given to the project by the owners of the home. Third-party certification through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)  is the  benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance, environmentally sustainable buildings.  There are currently many economic incentives offered by federal, state & local governments for attaining LEED certification. For example, the City of Cincinnati currently  offers property tax abatement terms based upon the certification level achieved on new LEED certified homes. Current Federal and State incentives include tax credits for making energy efficient choices.
