Allegheny Design Services continuously finds ways to better the environment through project development. By specifying energy efficient equipment or sustainable design that is safer and more economical for our communities, we continuously strive to uphold the highest certification as possible.

In doing so, projects need to be planned accordingly. ADS has two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design accredited professionals on staff–Mike Chancey and David Cotton, both LEED AP–who have experience working on LEED certified building projects. They will work with the project team to define project goals and incorporate LEED design criteria into construction documents and specifications.
