Considered the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings,the Living Building Challenge impacts every aspect of design and construction including energy efficiency, water consumption and materials selection, as well as factors affecting the impact of the structure on occupants and the surrounding environment.
Tremco helps design and construction teams achieve LBC certification and meet the imperatives of multiple “Petals” (performance outcomes) through a variety of eco-friendly solutions:
Energy – Prevent air and water infiltration across the building envelope, helping reduce the energy required to heat and cool buildings
Water– Increase storm water retention
Energy– Insulate roofs helping reduce heat gains in summer and heat losses in winter
Beauty –Create aesthetically pleasing indoor and outdoor environments
Single-source vegetated roof systems
Materials – Free from Red List chemicals found in many common building products and currently being phased out of production in order to reduce toxicity concerns
