See below how Metal ceilings by Gabelex can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Building life-cycle impact reduction
Gabelex Metal Ceilings performed three Environmental Product Declarations to help you in your green building projects.
To encourage adaptive reuse and optimize the environmental performance of products and materials.
Option 1 “Historic building reuse”: (5 points)
Maintain the existing building structure, envelope, and interior nonstructural elements of a historic building or contributing building in a historic district.
Option 2 “Renovation of abandoned or blighted building”: (5 points)
Maintain at least 50%, by surface area, of the existing building structure, enclosure, and interior structural elements for buildings that meet local criteria of abandoned or are considered blight.
Option 3 “Building and material reuse” (2–4 points)
Reuse or salvage building materials from off site or on site.
Option 4 “Whole-building life-cycle assessment”: (3 points)
For new construction (buildings or portions of buildings), conduct a life-cycle assessment of the project’s structure and enclosure that demonstrates a minimum of 10% reduction, compared with a baseline building. No impact category assessed as part of the life-cycle assessment may increase by more than 5% compared with the baseline building.
