2008-9-2My friend (A LEED Certified Architect) built a house (Platinum Certified) for himself up here in the Midwest. A pretty cool modern design, lots of glass (52%), steel beams, huge cantilever, and steel studs, concrete w/radiant heat floors through out. This house is located in the burbs so it doesn't fit in in very well - but it is neat none the

Lithocrete is a patented architectural concrete paving system that utilizes the structural properties of reinforced concrete, combined with the aesthetic quality of surface-seeded select aggregates. These aggregates include but are not limited to: Crushed rock - granite, obsidian, quartz, serpentine, marble

Sustainable building materials are essential for greener buildings—and a healthier world. Construction and demolition waste makes up about 40% of the total solid waste stream in the U.S. and about 25% of the total waste stream in the European Union, according to USGBC.Sustainable building materials can help us reduce this large amount of waste and the negative effects of greenhouse gases.

The Carbon Leadership Forum has published a new version of the Product Category Rules for concrete, the document used for developing Environmental Product Declarations for concrete.Version 1.1 updates the original PCR, published in November 2012, by increasing the number of environmental impacts that must be reported in EPDs, and expanding the scope from North America to other countries.

Test samples of concrete flatwork, showing a range of solar reflectivity. Regardless of mix constituents, concrete in the United States reduce heat islands and qualify for points in the LEED Green Building Rating System. Solar reflectance (sometimes called albedo) is the ratio of solar energy that falls on a surface to the amount reflected.

The corrosion mechanisms and performance of black and hot-dip galvanized steel in concrete are different than when exposed to atmospheric conditions. Steel embedded in concrete is exposed to a highly alkaline environment. Black steel is passive in alkaline concrete until the chloride level exceeds approximately 1 lb/yd 3, when steel becomes depassivated and starts to corrode.
