“In our role as a home builder’s largest single supplier, Henry Poor Lumber and Home Works provide not only products, but also installation and building science expertise. Our mission is to develop programs that will help our customers build green homes by promoting healthy, energy- and resource-efficient building practices and products.

Henry Poor taking the L.E.E.D.
Henry Poor has worked on commercial construction projects requiring L.E.E.D. certification and has the products and knowledge to assist you in obtaining this standard. As more federal and state projects require suppliers and builders to meet L.E.E.D. guidelines, let Henry Poor use their experience to guide you through the process.
What does it mean to be L.E.E.D. certified?
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating SystemTM — developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C.-based, nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders — promotes design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the negative environmental impacts of buildings and improving occupant health and well-being.
