Green Building
 

Lamit Industries’ Green Build Mission:

  • Provide Structural Insulated Panel systems that contribute points to the LEED* Green Building Rating System.
  • Aid architects/engineers, designers, building owners, and contractors, in achieving a LEED* certified building by supplying energy efficient and environmentally responsible products that will have a positive impact on the environment and community. 

What is Green Building?

Green building is the practice of minimizing the impact a building has on the natural environment. Although there are numerous theories and
rating systems proposing how this can be accomplished, they all share several clear goals:

  • Reduced Energy Consumption – Energy is in high demand, and the processes used to generate energy often produce carbon dioxide emissions. Decreasing energy and fossil fuel use in buildings is important to prevent large-scale climate change.

  • Material and Resource Conservation – Green designers and builders select building materials and methods that reduce the amount of natural resources required to construct a building.

  • Healthy Indoor Environment – With people spending 90% of their time indoors, buildings should create a safe environment for occupants, free from mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other harmful airborne pollutants.

  • Water Conservation – Water-saving systems limit the use of this important natural resource and prevent water pollution that can damage natural ecosystems.

  • Site Planning – Careful site and infrastructure development will minimize water and air pollution.
Why is Green Building Important?

The construction and operation of buildings has a significant impact on the environment. Buildings account for 39% of total U.S. energy
consumption and 38% of carbon dioxide emissions.

Buildings also use a tremendous amount of natural resources to construct and operate. Constructing green buildings that use these
resources more efficiently, while minimizing pollution that can harm renewable natural resources, is crucial to a sustainable future.
There are economic benefits to green buildings as well. Energy-efficient buildings cost less to operate. Studies have shown that healthy
indoor environments can actually improve employee and student productivity.
