Masonry Products...Excellence in Sustainable Designs and the Environment
More and more communities, architects, and owners are requiring sustainable design as the world moves towards a “green” environment. With sustainability in mind, buildings are being constructed to have a small carbon footprint and to lessen the impact on the environment. Masonry is expected to have a very long-life expectancy (100 years +) and as it’s a durable building material, it has little to no maintenance. Clay is an abundant natural resource that can be found all over the world and is easily recycled. Almost all of today’s masonry contains recycled content and offers many sustainable attributes; including efficient mining and manufacturing, acoustical and fire resistance, low maintenance, durability, and energy efficiency.
