LEED Summary

When researching and specifying products for use in a project striving to qualify for LEED certification, it is important to realize specific nuances. First, LEED does not “certify” any product other than the final building – there are no LEED certified products in the marketplace. Second, no specific product can automatically give your project LEED points.

On the positive side, however, when using FreeForm and working toward a LEED certified project: The use of FreeForm CAN CONTRIBUTE TOWARD or COMPLY WITH LEED credit requirements.

FreeForm can contribute or comply with multiple credits. These include:

  • Materials and Resources (MR) Credit 4: Recycled Content
  • Materials and Resources (MR) Credit 7: Certified Wood
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) Credit 4.4: Low Emitting Materials – Composite Wood
  • And depending on the project location, it MAY contribute to MR Credit 5: Regional materials
