TESSERE Architecture Named LEED® Proven Provider™ by Green Building Certification Institute; Status Acknowledges GLMV’s Role as High-quality LEED Project Administrator

We are excited to announce that the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has designated TESSERE Architecture  a LEED® Proven Provider™ for the BD+C rating system family. This designation was developed to streamline the LEED project review process for experienced organizations that demonstrate consistent excellence in administering LEED projects.

“Quality is at the core of the LEED certification process, and TESSERE has exhibited expertise in helping to bring healthy, high-performing buildings to the market,” said Doug Gatlin, vice president of program delivery, USGBC and GBCI. “The LEED Proven Provider model represents a great partnership between TESSERE and GBCI, because it allows GBCI to maintain a rigorous certification program and gives TESSERE  the opportunity to deliver LEED projects to its clients faster.”

“TESSERE Architecture is committed to the principles of sustainability and being designated as a LEED® Proven Provider™ is one more step in bringing additional value to our clients and to the communities where we practice,” states Jeffrey Weiford, vice president of TESSERE Architecture.

LEED Proven Provider is designed to encourage and reward high-quality LEED project submissions to minimize the need for additional work during the project review process. It represents an opportunity for TESSERE and LEED reviewers to work together to enhance the LEED certification experience, simultaneously allowing TESSERE to further invest in quality control and continuous improvement and allowing LEED reviewers more opportunities for direct engagement with and support for project teams.

Organizations that demonstrate and maintain high-quality project submissions through LEED Proven Provider receive significant benefits, such as greater access to a LEED reviewer and recognition from USGBC for their sustained track record of high-quality project submissions.
