EBDG Staff Becomes LEED Accredited Professional

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) announced that Joe Payne, P.E. and senior electrical engineer, has earned his certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council.  LEED Accredited Professionals (AP) are building industry practitioners who have demonstrated their knowledge of green building practices and are able to facilitate the certification process through their familiarity with LEED requirements and resources.  While the LEED certification process has applied only to the land-based building environment, EBDG is introducing these practices to the marine industry.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System is the nationally-accepted standard for the design, construction and operation of high-performance, environmentally-sustainable buildings.  The credit-based system awards points to building projects  for eco-friendly actions taken during the design, construction and use of a building. 
Joe Payne joined EBDG in 2007 with over 20 years of experience in marine electrical design.  He is a licensed professional engineer, a former submarine officer, an Engineering Duty Officer in the Naval Reserve and a graduate.
