Status Acknowledges The Compass Group’s Role as High-Quality LEED Project Administrator
Washington, DC — April 9, 2015 —The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has designated The Compass Group a LEED® Proven Provider™ for the LEED for Building Operations and Maintenance (LEED O+M) rating system family. This designation was developed to streamline the LEED project review process for experienced organizations that demonstrate consistent excellence in administering LEED projects.
“Quality is at the core of the LEED certification process, and The Compass Group has exhibited expertise in helping to bring healthy, high-performing buildings to the market,” said Doug Gatlin, vice president of program delivery, USGBC and GBCI. “The LEED Proven Provider model represents a great partnership between The Compass Group and GBCI, because it allows GBCI to maintain a rigorous certification program and gives The Compass Group the opportunity to deliver LEED projects to its clients faster.”
“We are proud to be recognized for our high caliber of consulting with this designation,” said Dirk Mason, Principal and Co-Founder of the Compass Group. “This designation speaks volumes of the expertise we bring to our clients’ projects.”
LEED Proven Provider is designed to encourage and reward high-quality LEED project submissions to minimize the need for additional work during the project review process. It represents an opportunity for The Compass Group and LEED reviewers to work together to enhance the LEED certification experience, simultaneously allowing The Compass Group to further invest in quality control and continuous improvement and allowing LEED reviewers more opportunities for direct engagement with and support for project teams.
Recently certified LEED projects from The Compass Group include:

- 900 7th Street, Gold Certification, Washington, DC
- 975 F Street, Silver Certification, Washington, DC
