Green Building

At Kalkreuth, we understand the projects we undertake and services we provide have a profound impact on the natural environment. We understand it’s a big responsibility. We’ve joined forces with other members of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to promote the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, “green” building, and sustainability throughout our market and the roofing industry. This ensures an energy-efficient, better quality, environmentally responsible building for our customers.

LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s “green” features. This allows for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of resource-efficient buildings. Sustainable construction practices are the present and future of the construction industry, and Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal is dedicated to these principles. We have successfully completed work on hundreds of LEED Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum projects. In 2016, we will have completed a Living Building Challenge project through the International Living Future Institute, which shows our customers we are consistently taking steps toward increasing our involvement, and ultimately our resources, within that sector of the industry.

As a “green” construction company, many of our employees are actively involved in the national green building dialogue, and we follow strict guidelines that adhere to LEED standards. LEED certified buildings are designed to utilize some of the most modern and highly-technological construction techniques and materials, and Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal has LEED Accredited Professionals (APs) and a certified Green Roofing Professional (GRP) on staff to ensure that design standards are meticulously met for all areas in our scope of work.

We’re serious about building responsibly and can accommodate and comply with the modern, complex aspects of sustainability. If we didn’t have LEED professionals on staff, we would merely be looking from the outside in. We have the knowledge and expertise in-house and are therefore able to pilot each “green” initiative.
