Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 05, 2015
The Garland Company, Inc. has long been at the forefront of sustainable design, promoting the importance of longevity and energy efficiency in increasing the overall life-cycle value of the building envelope. As a part of that commitment, Garland recently redesigned its Sustainable Solutions brochure and developed an interactive version to introduce building owners, facility managers, architects, and other design professionals to Garland’s comprehensive offering of long-lasting, durable and eco-responsible building envelope solutions.
The brochure includes a comparative analysis of sustainable solution benefits, highlighting various roof systems’ potential for likelihood of achieving LEED® points, energy savings and inclusion of recycled content among other sustainable attributes. There are small blue icons placed throughout the digital version that link to additional content, including comprehensive product descriptions, application videos and project profiles.
According to Brian Lambert, Garland’s director of products and systems, “Sustainable design is no longer synonymous with green roofs, but is more deeply rooted in the performance, life-cycle value, energy savings and overall environmental impact the products have on the building itself and the surrounding environment. This new literature helps clarify the options available to achieve sustainable design.”
