Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability has become a hot topic in today’s media. Building green makes a positive impact on both the environment, and the health of the people working in and around it.  The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system was developed by USGBC (United States Green Building Council) committees to encourage sustainable practices by guiding the development and ratings of energy efficient construction. 

Polished concrete is a LEED friendly product.  It utilizes the existing concrete surfaces which eliminates the need for additional coverings and coating materials to be manufactured and purchased.  Tile, carpet, and linoleum wind up in landfills when they require replacement.  Polished concrete is highly durable, and should a repolish ever become necessary, it is completed on the existing slab at only a fraction of the cost without any significant waste.  Also, unlike some caustic concrete applications, polished concrete contains no noticeable VOC’s, qualifying it for yet another LEED point.
