Lafarge North America has launched a new online guide to assist architects and engineers in finding products that will help them to meet green building requirements under the LEED rating system.
The tool allows a user to enter search criteria by product or LEED credit category and find which products are available within the credit radius of the project.
Each product listing includes a description of the product and an explanation of how that product can help contribute to achieving points in particular LEED credit categories.
Credit categories include Sustainable Site Selection, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation in Design.
While the guide currently features Lafarge cement and gypsum products, the company plans to soon add other products and green building rating systems.
