Bernbaum-Magadini Architects provides a range of professional services, including LEED analysis, to help municipalities achieve the goals desired by the public at large, and all of the projects at Bernbaum-Magadini Architects have a commitment to sustainable, energy-efficient design. Having completed their coursework in Arizona in the late seventies, several of the design and energy concepts that are becoming popular now, have existed for decades having been originally developed in the extreme desert conditions of the southwest during the partners time in college.

L.E.E.D.  has rapidly emerged as the most important force in the accelerating market for green buildings.  Recognizing this importance, the General Services Administration (GSA), which operates as the federal governments landlord, has issued a report that found the U. S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) system to be the most credible among the systems evaluated. Government and private builders apply standards for green buildings – including energy efficiency, materials used in the buildings, water use, and other environmental attributes – making green buildings a focus of sustainable products and processes that impact a wide range of industries, including forest and paper, steel, and chemicals. A few of the many economic benefits achieved in a LEED building include reducing operating costs, enhancing asset value and profits, improved employee productivity and satisfaction, and optimized life-cycle economic performance. Health and community benefits include improved air quality,  better thermal and acoustic environments, enhanced occupant comfort and health, minimized strain on local infrastructure, all of which contribute to overall higher quality of life.
