Building Green with SIPs
Green Building Programs and R-Control SIP.
The selection of R-Control SIPs for your building makes it easy to comply with various national green building programs.
LEED is a program developed by the USGBC that provides third-party verification of green buildings. Building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. R-Control SIPs have been used in many LEED buildings, including buildings with the highest Platinum rating. For more information on the LEED program, please visit www.usgbc.org
ENERGY STAR® HOMES.
A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the US EPA. ENERGY STAR certified homes use 15-30% less energy than typical new homes while delivering better comfort, quality, and durability. R-Control SIPs are deemed to comply with the program without conducting on-site blower door testing. For more information on the ENERGY STAR program, please visit www.energystar.gov
ICC 700 National Green Building Standard.
The National Green Building Standard™ certification goes well beyond saying a home is energy efficient; it provides independent, third-party verification that a home, apartment building, or land development is designed and built to achieve high performance in six key areas: Site Design, Resource Efficiency, Water Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Building Operation & Maintenance.
