The environmental impact of a green roof is undeniable, and adds significantly to the LEED Point system designed by the USGC in all five major areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Green roofing replaces the green space displaced by a building, prevents excess stormwater drainage, reduces the temperature of a building and the urban heat island effect, protects and extends the useful life of a roof, and reduce energy demands. What's more, a green roof incorporating AirDrain means your design includes renewable, recycled, and locally obtained materials. Airfield Systems knows you have a choice in designing a green roof, and hopes you consider the many benefits of AirDrain.
Hydrotech has developed products, systems and alliances that reflect their commitment to environmental sustainability. Along with producing one of the industry's best performing membranes, Hydrotech has also introduced some of the industry's most sustainable waterproofing assemblies. For instance, Hydrotech's MM6125®EV (environmental grade formulation) is a hot-applied rubberized asphalt that can be formulated with up to 25% post consumer recycled content. Monolithic Membrane 6125, the foundation for all their assemblies, helps generate LEED® points on projects around the country each and every day. Hydrotech assemblies feature recycled content in the membrane and reduced lifecycle cots due to project longevity (which also reduces its impact on landfills). In addition, the Ultimate Assembly® delivers energy savings through reflective pavers, while their Garden Roof® Assembly delivers storm water management capabilities.

The AWS™ Pedestal System promotes a 'green' environment! Sustainably designed, it is constructed of fully recyclable, durable ABS and PVC plastics and 100% recycled rubber. The AWS™ Pedestal System is the natural solution for ecological concerns. That's why the AWS™ Pedestal System was chosen for the Atlanta City Hall Green Roof Project, The Built Green Idea Home 2004 (2004 winner of the Gold Nugget Grand Award for Sustainable/Green Residential Project of the Year), and the New American Home at the 2004 International Builders Show in Las Vegas. That's also why the Introductory Manual for Greening Roofs (.PDF) commissioned by the Canadian government in 2002 lists the AWS™ Pedestal System as an integral part of the green solution.

Yes, Vinyl IS Green. Aside from having No Deck or Roof (which uses NO products, consumes NO energy, and creates NO landfill waste or need to recycle), Duradek is your GREEN choice for Outdoor Waterproof Flooring. When compared to products that perform the SAME function, consider the following: PVC's one-step application and longevity compare favorably to the multiple application and reapplication requirements of liquid-applied systems, saving many trips to the job, which in turn consumes less energy. As a waterproof roof or deck, compared to alternatives, DURADEK IS THE GREENER CHOICE!

Fox Blocks Insulated Concrete Walls specified for the exterior building envelope on sustatainable projects will add directly and indirectly to the contribution of LEED points in multiple credit categories. The decision to build with Fox Blocks ICF wall systems is a significant step towards making our society more sustainable, while at the same time increasing the comfort and security of the building occupants.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ signifies U.S. Green Building Council’s endeavor to provide a national rating system for developing sustainable building designs and construction. These guidelines help create "green buildings” by using natural resources without destroying the ecological equilibrium. Keene can help you achieve LEED Credits, contact us today to learn more.
Noble sheet membranes contain an average of 11% of post-industrial scrap. During the manufacturing process, reclaimable sheet material is reintroduced into the production system and is made into new product. Other scrap membrane is utilized by our marketing department for use as promotional product samples. Noble Company also manufactures ready-to-tile shower accessories, such as Niches, Benches and Curbs, that are made from polystyrene. 100% of the scrap material from the manufacturing process of these products is repurposed or recycled and returned to our local supplier. Other recycling practices in our manufacturing processes include: water used in the manufacturing process of Noble sheet membranes, oil from production equipment, and materials from dust collectors.
Sto manufactures several products that help reduce a building's overall impact on the environment and thus can contribute to a project's ability to earn points toward LEED certification. Sto offers coatings, waterproofing materials, repair mortars and surface preparation products that can be used to restore surfaces of many types, including masonry, cement block, and even painted surfaces. For a more extensive makeover, StoTherm™ Insulated Wall Claddings can also be applied over most surfaces, providing a new look with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency.
