With all of the work that we do here at WegoWise to ensure that you save as much as possible on your monthly utility bills, it's easy to forget that some buildings are designed with savings in mind. This is especially true for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings, which are required to meet stringent qualifications intended to maximize resource use and minimize environmental impact right from their inception.

This Friday, we've scoured the Internet to provide you with five great articles on LEED projects around the world, three of which involve improving existing buildings. Enjoy!
