Excitement over LEED and Marble Restoration, June 11th, 2009

Sungloss Marble Company has recently been involved in projects where businesses or municipalities have desired a LEED certification. With all the excitement and interest in LEED, I thought I’d touch generally on what that means. We’ll have more specifics on the individual projects in future posts.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is simply a standardized way of measuring how ‘green’ a building is. It was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (link) in a consensus process, which included non-profit organizations, government agencies, architects, engineers, developers, builders, product manufacturers, and industry leaders. From the web: LEED certified buildings use key resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings which are simply built to code. LEED certified buildings have healthier work and living environments, which contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort.

At Sungloss Marble, when it comes to conserving existing buildings, we have been working towards the same goals for LEED certification since before LEED even existed! Some of the criteria—low emission working products, low emission (water-based) sealing products, and conservation/restoration of existing walls and floors—have been our focus from the start.

A flooring firm in Michigan that does similar work to Sungloss, has an extensive website that talks about LEED certification. Some parts (not all) relate to what I’m talking about and give some details (link).
