Live! Web-Based Product Application Matrix for Sustainable Design Solutions
Finally, the completion of an innovative new tool that will enable architects, designers, specifiers, and other members of the design team to evaluate, compare, and discover the benefits of vinyl products in the current sustainable business marketplace.
Posted on www.achievegreen.net are checklists for two prominent green building guidelines, geared toward design professionals who are specifying products for sustainable and high performance projects.
The checklists demonstrate how vinyl products fit into systems designed and specified to meet green building criteria in the Green Building Initiative™ Proposed ANS 01-2008P: Green Building Assessment Protocol for Commercial Buildings and LEED®-NC v3. Product manufacturers are listed in alphabetical order within the checklist by types of vinyl products, which support systems that can contribute to credits within the green building rating systems.
Companies not listed that have sustainable green product criteria supporting potential credits within these green guidelines can provide their information to firstname.lastname@example.org at The Vinyl Institute, and it will be reviewed for inclusion in the checklist.
Webinars to help users walk through and review the “achieve green” product matrix will be scheduled in the next couple of months.
The Vinyl Institute represents the leading manufacturers involved in the production of PVC/vinyl resin in the United States, and promotes the value of PVC/vinyl products to society.
