What Does the LEED after my name mean?

By Denise Colestock, LEED A.P. BD+C

As the newest member of the Urban Floor team, I am excited to share my knowledge and passion for sustainable design with our clients and colleagues.  The credentials after my name, LEED BD+C, mean that I am a LEED Accredited Professional and have passed an exam that allows me to design environmentally friendly buildings using strict codes and guidelines that lead to efficient buildings.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is redefining the way our built environments are designed, constructed and operated.  Factors that are considered when creating a LEED building include sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.  This rating system can be used for commercial buildings as well as for residential homes and neighborhoods as a whole, and is constantly aimed at achieving high performance in human and environmental health.

With a background in design and architecture, I am excited to bring the latest news and trends to the Urban Floor team when it comes to flooring design and sustainable building technologies.

    Hi Jeff,I was wondering how flat a 5/8 tunoge and groove subfloor needs to be to prevent 3/4 x 5 wide solid hardwood flooring from squeeking. I am planning on screwing the subfloor to the floor joists and glueing and nailing the hardwood to the subfloor. When I removed the old carpet and 3/8 particle board from the existing floor, I found the plywood subfloor to be very dirty and had to sand it to remove the dirt, so the glue would hold. The subfloor is fairly smooth but I am sure there are areas where it may be plus or minus 1/16 over an 18 span. Will 3/4 thick x 5 wide black walnut conform to some waviness? I will likely put some leveling compound over the plywood joints as I had to recess the nails for sanding.Thanks
