LEED Green Building Rating System
A building project can earn LEED points by incorporating various green-building elements.
SmartBlock™ insulated concrete forms can contribute more than 25 points towards the 69 available points for a LEED NC certified structure.
The obvious savings in energy use, and increased efficiency in air-quality are two main factors in building with SmartBlock ICF's.
Energy saving is the most heavily-weighed criteria, and there are10 points achievable. Because SmartBlock™ provides a high-performance thermal envelope, it is possible to achieve all 10 points using this system.
There is minimal waste during the construction process, and therefore the destruction of natural habitat is minimized as well.
All of these factors, assist in adding up to a platinum candidate for LEEDs ratings and certification.
