Tornadoes, hurricanes, and higher temperatures adversely affect the life cycle of our infrastructure. To make a difference in this changing world, look to sustainable and resilient construction.

Project design teams increasingly specify products that improve the life cycle of structures and reduce global warming and smog.

More and more, contractors and concrete producers want their company to be a business of choice for “green” projects. In order to do that, they need to improve their products and processes. But where do you start? How do you learn about and implement changes to join this new world of sustainable construction?

Because we have a LEED-credentialed scientist on staff, we can can take you through every step to become a company of choice for sustainable and resilient construction:

  • Describe what you need to do in order to qualify as a green company for designers
