USGBC Announces Inclusive Design Pilot Credit Proposed by SWA  

The LEED rating system will now include an inclusive design pilot credit. The intrinsic connection between green building, health, and accessibility is what led SWA to propose this credit back in 2017. We are excited and proud of our contribution toward improving the LEED program with a more holistic approach to building design and construction.

Benefits of Water Metering and Water Monitoring 

Water monitoring can quickly become a building owner’s best friend. The high cost of water bills can often overshadow the cost of fuel and electricity bills, but ownership and management often believe that the price of their water bill is simply something to deal with. In reality, water monitoring can serve as an important tool that has the potential to identify costly and pervasive leaks in a building.
