WHY LEED?

Each product we recommend to our clients has been carefully selected to provide the maximum price-performance ratio available. We use these products exclusively, because we believe they represent the best of their kind in the marketplace

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards provide a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Our Stormwater Management Systems Enable Green Building

Projects designed and constructed to comply with LEED guidelines benefit from stormwater management systems that emphasize sustainability modeled on natural hydrologic cycles. Innovative systems manufactured from recycled materials and that can be assembled on site are particularly important in earning LEED credits. Our products are used in Green Building projects in many ways, including:

  • Stormwater Detention and Recycling
  • Infiltration and Groundwater Recharge
  • Green Roofs and Planter Boxes
  • Permeable Paving

LEED Credits

The use of our stormwater management systems can help the LEED project designer earn credits in the following categories:

  • Sustainable Sites
    • Maximize open space (5.1)
    • Minimize development footprint (5.2)
    • Reduce stormwater quantity (6.1)
    • Improve stormwater quality (6.2)
  • Water Efficiency
    • Recycle stormwater (1.1, 1.2, 2)
    • Reduce demand on potable water (3.1, 3.2)
  • Materials and Resources
    • Recycled plastics (4.1, 4.2) Ship flat and assemble on site (5.1)
  • Innovation and Design Process

OUR LID CASE STUDIES

FEATURED LID PRODUCT

The modular Stratavault system employs advanced design geometry and reinforced copolymers to produce an incredibly robust, skeletal matrix. This matrix has been tested by Finite Element Analysis, as well as physical Ultimate Load tests at university. These test results have been verified by consulting engineers to provide adequate support for pavement loads

Stormwater: Why Care?

Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and decease constantly wrecked havoc in ancient cities.

Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.

Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It effects where we live and play. It effects our marine-based food supply. It effects our dwindling water supply.

We care. It is why we do what we do.
