2008-9-2My friend (A LEED Certified Architect) built a house (Platinum Certified) for himself up here in the Midwest. A pretty cool modern design, lots of glass (52%), steel beams, huge cantilever, and steel studs, concrete w/radiant heat floors through out. This house is located in the burbs so it doesn't fit in in very well - but it is neat none the
This is an example page. It's different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this: Hi there! I'm a bike messenger 
Poly-Crete MDB is a seamless, 1/4 inch, solids, aromatic, cementitious urethane concrete coating system with a natural quartz aggregate broadcast that provides a slip-resistant, gloss finish. Its coefficient of thermal expansion is similar to concrete, making it very resistant to thermal shock. Highly resistant to chemicals and food acids.

The corrosion mechanisms and performance of black and hot-dip galvanized steel in concrete are different than when exposed to atmospheric conditions. Steel embedded in concrete is exposed to a highly alkaline environment. Black steel is passive in alkaline concrete until the chloride level exceeds approximately 1 lb/yd 3, when steel becomes depassivated and starts to corrode.
The Carbon Leadership Forum has published a new version of the Product Category Rules for concrete, the document used for developing Environmental Product Declarations for concrete.Version 1.1 updates the original PCR, published in November 2012, by increasing the number of environmental impacts that must be reported in EPDs, and expanding the scope from North America to other countries.
2020-9-14BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) make concrete comfortable, quiet, safe, and energy-efficient. They survive natural disasters better than those built with traditional construction methods. Traditional wood-frame construction can't compare to the safety, permanence, resilience, and energy efficiency of walls built with insulating
Sustainable building materials are essential for greener buildings—and a healthier world. Construction and demolition waste makes up about 40% of the total solid waste stream in the U.S. and about 25% of the total waste stream in the European Union, according to USGBC.Sustainable building materials can help us reduce this large amount of waste and the negative effects of greenhouse gases.
Lithocrete is a patented architectural concrete paving system that utilizes the structural properties of reinforced concrete, combined with the aesthetic quality of surface-seeded select aggregates. These aggregates include but are not limited to: Crushed rock - granite, obsidian, quartz, serpentine, marble
Concrete Construction Chemicals LATICRETE was the first manufacturer of tile and stone installation materials to earn and offer the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute's (GEI) certification.

Test samples of concrete flatwork, showing a range of solar reflectivity. Regardless of mix constituents, concrete in the United States reduce heat islands and qualify for points in the LEED Green Building Rating System. Solar reflectance (sometimes called albedo) is the ratio of solar energy that falls on a surface to the amount reflected.
2020-3-30For more than 200 years, or since the industrial revolution, the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO 2) in the atmosphere has increased due to the burning of fossil fuels and land use change.The ocean absorbs about 30 percent of the CO 2 that is released in the atmosphere, and as levels of atmospheric CO 2 increase, so do the levels in the ocean.. When CO 2 is absorbed by
