Concrete Design Firm Announces Green Practices

May 21, 2007

Denver, CO (PRWeb) — Concrete habitat™, an architectural concrete design firm headquartered in Denver, CO, recently announced that it is replacing 25 percent of its cementious material with a post-industrial waste product eligible for LEED® points from the U.S. Green Building Council, which awards points for the use of recycled content in construction products.

Concrete habitat estimates that this replacement will save more than 10 tons of cement annually. This will result in a 10 ton reduction in CO2 emissions, 35 mm BTUs of energy will be saved and 15 fewer tons of cement feedstocks will be mined.

"Concrete habitat is committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products through the use of post-industrial recycled materials," says Scott Hild, Concrete habitat president and founder.

Concrete habitat™ is an architectural concrete design firm specializing in the production of concrete countertops, vanities, fireplace surrounds, sinks and tables for both the residential and commercial markets. Founded in 2002, Concrete habitat ships custom work and standard products throughout the country from offices in Denver, CO, and Spokane, WA. Corporate clients such as The Gap Stores, Hilton Hotels, and Johns Hopkins University have all discovered concrete for their habitat.
