Green Design : How To get LEED Points With Walker TexturesTM Products
Green design not only makes a positive impact on public health and the environment, it can also reduce operating costs and enhance buildings spaces and surroundings.
LEED fits into this initiative by providing rating systems that are voluntary and based on generally accepted energy and environmental principles.
The LEED rating systems are developped by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) committees, in adherence with USGBC policies and procedures guiding the development and maintenance of rating systems. They are applicable to new commercial construction and major renovation projects.
Under the LEED rating system, only projects are rated. There is no rating or certification system for raw materials or suppliers thereof. However, Walker Glass Co. Ltd. can help users of our products, and more specifically building owners, get LEED points by providing the following information :
- Recycled content of our products
- Distance between place of manufacturing and project site location
- Properties of our products, including light transmission and reflectance
The above information is available on demand. Do not hesitate to contact your sales representative or our customer service department.
