The spirit and intent of sustainable design and high-performing buildings reaches beyond specific credit definitions within green rating systems. Real benefit is extended to projects incorporating products and systems with multiple functions. While these may become part of the design based on a desired trait, they provide other functionality that can eliminate the need for additional material systems. Costs, material consumption, and environmental impact are thereby reduced.
We'll discuss products and systems that not only contribute to LEED® and other rating systems as given elsewhere in this section, but also offer great efficiency, flexibility, economy, and safety benefit.
Long-life, durable, low-maintenance materials that are completely recyclable.
Build a structure that doesn't burn, explode, or off-gas toxins should disaster strike.
Low impact, low embodied energy products.
