USGBC has announced that it will now include an inclusive design pilot credit for the LEED rating system. The intrinsic connection between green building, health, and accessibility is what led SWA to propose this credit back in 2017. We are excited and proud of our contribution toward improving the LEED program with a more holistic approach to building design and construction.
