Steel is…The New Green!


 

“LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.”

USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council)

With the new found interest in being environmentally aware, today’s construction industry is far more educated and conscience of sustainable building. Many builders and contractors are looking for a way to gather LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accreditation. The USGBC has recognized cold formed steel framing as an important contributor to environmentally responsible, sustainable structures.  Integra Steel Truss, Inc. can help you achieve your accreditation that you deserve for your building structure:
