Celebrating LEED Silver Certification at The Commons at SouthField Highlands!



Energy efficiency and innovation are two of the hottest sectors that companies from all industries are scrambling to master. That’s why here at Corcoran Management we have committed to developing all of our new properties to better suit the environment and our residents pockets! The Commons at SouthField Highlands, our newest apartment community in Weymouth was honored yesterday by the United States Green Building Council as a “LEED Silver Certified” building for achievement in Environmental-friendly design and functionality.
The Silver designation by the USGBC takes into account multiple qualities that measure a building’s energy dependence and impact on the environment. The following categories below are totaled up in credits which produce a score on a scale of 1-100.

  • Sustainable Site & Environment: encouraging strategies that minimize the impact on local ecosystems and water resources
  • Water Efficiency: promote smarter use of water, inside and out, to reduce potable water consumption
  • Energy & Atmosphere: promote better building energy performance through innovative strategies 
  • Materials & Resource: encourage using sustainable building materials and reducing waste
  • Indoor Environmental Quality: promote better indoor air quality and access to daylight and views



The USGBC acknowledges The Commons at SouthField as achieving a high-rate of success with the aforementioned qualities above. We couldn’t be more proud to have achieved this fabulous honor. Not just at The Commons, but throughout properties in Corcoran’s portfolio we are continuing to invest in energy efficiency and dependency!
