There are a number of ways our
can help you accumulate LEED points in each of the following
LEED credit categories as stated in NCMA TEK 6-9B:
1) Energy & Atmosphere Credit-Optimize Energy
Concrete masonry has excellent thermal storage due to high thermal
mass and specific heat. Masonry walls remain warm or cool long
after heating and air-conditioning have been reduced.
2) Materials & Resources Credit-Building Reuse
Concrete masonry is an exceptionally durable material, with a
life cycle measurably longer than many other building envelope
3) Materials & Resources Credit-Construction
Intact and unused masonry units can easily be returned to our
facility and redirected to other projects.
4) Materials & Resources Credit-Recycled Content
Cement Products & Supply Co., Inc. ReNuBlok enhances the ability to accumulate
extra LEED points by containing a very high percentage of post-consumer
recycled concrete material.
5) Materials & Resources Credit-Regional Materials
All materials used in the manufacture of ReNuBlok are extracted, processed and manufactured
within a 500 mile radius of our plant.
Additional advantages of ReNuBlok and concrete masonry include: lower
embodied energy compared to steel and aluminum, lower lifetime
maintenance due to durability and long life, reduced potential
for mold as concrete masonry does not provide a good food source
for mold, as well as increased fire safety.
