Turner edges out Perkins+Will for the top spot on BD+C's Top 200 Building Team LEED APs ranking

August 11, 2010

During the past year, 60,950 design and construction professionals in the U.S. earned their green stripes by becoming accredited through the Green Building Certification Institute’s LEED Accredited Professionals program. As of late June, 114,291 AEC professionals have been accredited through the GBCI, up from 53,341 last year, according to the Washington, D.C.-based organization. 

Since 2004, BD+C has tracked the number of LEED APs within the nation’s largest AEC firms as part of its annual Giants 300 survey. Of the 320 firms surveyed this year, 99% report having at least one LEED AP on staff, and 88% say they have 10 or more LEED APs.

For the first time, Turner takes the top spot on BD+C’s Top 200 Building Team LEED APs ranking, with 1,006. Turner added more than 580 LEED APs during the past year to surpass Perkins+Will, which held the top spot four years running.

LPA has the highest percentage of LEED APs on staff among the Giants 300, with 76.4% of the firm’s total staff accredited. Mithun (70.1%), Perkins+Will (61.7%), Dunham Associates (60.2%), and FXFOWLE Architects (55%) round out the top five by percentage.

Here are the Top 200 Building Team LEED APs:
