CayJam Development is also committed to making the Portmore Hospital a "Green" development, making it one of the first such development with a "green" focus in Jamaica.

The intent is the meet the National Green Building Standards (NAHB) as well as the U.S. Green Building Council (LEED) with regards to:

The Portmore Hospital development already included several features that meet the standards and requirements of these two organizations.  We attempted to design and structure the project to meet and exceed the requirements of the local agencies such as National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and National Works Agency (NWA), and to work closely with these organization to ensure we adhere to those high standards as well.

With this focus and design approach, it was only natural that we would also meet many of the standards and requirements of both NAHB and LEED.

As the development gets underway we will continue to update this page with additional information.


Preface from USGBC

The built environment has a profound impact on our natural environment, economy, health, and productivity.
Breakthroughs in building science, technology, and operations are now available to designers, builders, operators,
and owners who want to build green and maximize both economic and environmental performance.


Through the LEED® green building certification program, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is transforming
the built environment. The green building movement offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most
important challenges of our time, including global climate change, dependence on non sustainable and expensive
sources of energy, and threats to human health. The work of innovative building professionals is a fundamental
driving force in the green building moment. Such leadership is a critical component to achieving USGBC’s mission of
a sustainable built environment for all within a generation.
