Building Rating Systems
Knowing that Winston Churchill’s famous words are true, the environmental awareness of the last decades has transformed the thinking of the building process. The impact a building has on its people and the planet has developed new insights on how buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained, and operated. Exemplary building strategies and practices are recognized in various rating systems. These promote even more improvement in the industry. LEED and Green Globes are known throughout the architectural community as rating systems that push the bar higher for environmental building. Aspecta tiles and planks are the right choice in green construction for many reasons such as air quality, durability, or recyclability. They contribute to several credits in these different systems to gain certification.
