Architectural Cast Stone – LEED Rating System
The LEED rating system is the most widely used tool in assessing the environmental impact of a building and its components in the United States. As Architects work towards designing “greener” buildings, the LEED system provides a means of analyzing how eco-friendly their design is by awarding points in five environmental categories which leads to an LEED Certification. The use of Architectural Cast Stone can make a significant contribution toward earning LEED points on a project. The Cast Stone Institute has drafted a technical bulletin on the LEED rating system and how the use of Cast Stone can aid designers in achieving their LEED certification goal.
