Green Building Council Award
We are always looking for environmentally engaged partners and we recently learned that Arbors Direct has been recognized by the U. S. Green Building Council. Here is a portion of the press release: Arbors Direct is committed to the expansion of environmentally green and efficient building materials. Here is a statement from the company Advancements in the technology of composite building materials now reflects the public's preference for products with low maintenance and positive environmental impact. As the manufacture of the only complete fiberglass composite pergola system in the world, Arbors Direct, Inc. provides a unique answer to the reduction of environmental impact both during and after the construction process. • Using composites reduces negative impact to our ecological system • Their lightweight material requires less energy to transport the product. • Composite materials last longer than traditional materials (wood) and do not have to be replaced which means a longer life cycle cost. With its innovative composite technology, an Arbors Direct, Inc. pergola is more durable and longer lasting than wood, stronger and more attractive than vinyl and more abuse resistant than aluminum. We support the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building rating System and we encourage our customers to Design and specify using sustainable green building and developmental practices.
