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