sustainability

Modular construction is sustainable construction. There’s less environmental impact due to less material waste, less air and water pollution and reduced energy costs.

On-Site Construction is Wasteful.

Traditional construction methods result in commercial buildings with shorter lifetimes and more of an environmental footprint. Extended onsite construction phases increase the risks associated with air, water and noise pollution. Offsite construction reduces these risks. Steel will never burn, never rot, never off-gas. Steel contains more recycled materials than wood. And building with steel earns points for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certifications.

MODULAR is green

Our ability to provide products and construction techniques in compliance with the National Green Building Standard, show there is practically no “greener” way to construct buildings than with steel, noncombustible modular construction.

STEEL

Steel is an environmentally friendly alternative to wood, cutting no trees to make steel structural members. Steel-framed construction produces less scrap and waste than comparable wood-framed projects.

STEEL & sustainability

AIR QUALITY

Steel is nontoxic because it will not contaminate indoor air quality.

Recycled Content

Steel contains a large recycled component, and it can be fully recycled at the end of its useful life.

LEED

Building with Steel earns additional points for projects striving for LEED certification.
