Garrett Middle School, Garrett, INGreen Floors & Green Interiors in Fort Wayne and Surrounding Areas
Earn terrazzo LEED credits for making environmentally smart choices.
Terrazzo scores LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits in green homes, new construction, retail offices, hospitals, and schools because green floors and green interiors such as terrazzo better retain desired temperatures, are durable, and use recycled materials. Marble chips, glass aggregate, as well as epoxy binders are available throughout many areas of the United States. A floor incorporating 100 percent recycled glass aggregate could contain as much as 75 percent recycled raw material by volume. Manufactured of thin set epoxy terrazzo systems have moved to 100 percent solid formulas, eliminating the addition of any VOC's in the material. Certification of compliance may be obtained from the individual epoxy manufacturer. Environmentally efficient green floors and green interiors also waste fewer resources to clean and maintain.
