LEED Certification & Concrete.
At F&F, we can help your project earn a higher LEED certification by using recycled materials and reducing your environmental impact.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system is the most widely adopted green building design and construction evaluation program in the U.S.
LEED encourages building owners and developers to construct buildings with a reduced environmental impact.
We’ve recognized it as an essential component of our commitment to environmental sustainability.
F&F Concrete can help you earn LEED points for your next project. Here’s how:
- Our concrete contains recycled materials such as flyash or slag
- We recycle sand, stone, and gray water
- We use regional materials (sand, aggregate, cement, flyash, admixtures)
After meeting 8 LEED prerequisites, your project can achieve LEED certification. That being said, the certification has three tiers which include Silver, Gold, or Platinum level based on how much its environmental impact is reduced.
The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) has published a comprehensive LEED reference guide. Moreover, said guide explains how ready mixed concrete can help design and construction professionals maximize their LEED credits.
