Tilt-up Construction - Have you ever driven past a construction site and seen a construction company's massive cranes lifting huge panels of concrete in the air? Have you watched with amazement as a new commercial building seems to spring into place, almost overnight?

LEED, USGBC and Green Building - The LEED rating system, established by the US Green Building Council, is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, providing building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Bob Moore Construction provides detailed information about green building and LEED in this section of Commercial Construction.com.
