Our precast panels help achieve LEED certification in a variety of ways, including their ability to be recycled, local manufacturing capability and thermal mass and insulated cores. All of these attributes help reduce the expended energy needed to manufacture, transport and erect materials, which are key LEED requirements. Other items we produce using LEED mix are barriers, planters, vaults, bollards and landscape blocks.
