Green Construction
Optimize energy performance by insulating stud cavities
 
 
Green Construction LEED®
Lighter weight Metal Stud Crete® panels may contribute toward achieving additional LEED points affecting a higher certification level.
Materials & Resources for Green Construction
Recycled Content MR 4.0
Steel studs, MSC connectors and reinforcing mesh contain between 30.47% and 80% recycled content, 23.5% to 30% post consumer scrap, 6.4% to 70% pre consumer scrap (depending on the steel manufacturer). Concrete may contain fly ash when required.

Regional Materials MR 5.0
Locally extracted materials, manufactured within 500 miles of any project in the USA.
Recycled Materials
Green Construction Materials
Galvanized light gauge steel studs and MSC connectors have a high recycled materials content.
Regionally manufactured and locally extracted materials.
 
Green Construction Impacts on Energy & Atmosphere
Optimize energy performance
Steel stud cavities may be insulated with various insulation products. Exterior joints are backer rod and caulked. Foil faced insulation board installed on the interior decreases inside air flow and thermal transfer, optimizing energy performance.
 
Green Construction Innovation & Design Process
May contribute towards achieving an Innovation in Design credit by
• Conserving resources in manufacturing
• Reducing materials in the structure
• Reducing CO2 emissions in manufacturing
• Reducing environmental impacts of transportation
• Durable, low maintenance
Low Emissions with Green Construction
Low Environmental Impact with Green Construction
Thin concrete decreases carbon dioxide emissions by 65%. Lighter weight composite panels conserve resources by reducing the volume of materials required in manufacturing and in the building's foundation and super structure.
Shipping double the number of panels per load decreases the environmental impacts of transportation by 50%.
