LEED Certified Buildings Are Shaping the Future
Big Top’s LEED certified buildings are paving the way for commercial and industrial businesses looking to go green. Here is a little bit about why:
Did you know that buildings account for almost 40 percent of national carbon dioxide emissions? That’s a lot! And with the effort to lower carbon dioxide emissions gaining momentum worldwide, buildings have become a focal point of the green wave. Not only can green buildings save considerable money by using less energy and reducing the production of waste, but there are measurable ranking systems in place (the international standard being LEED) that can help businesses committed to building green earn tax incentives and other benefits.
The go-to source for commercial and industrial LEED certified buildings is Big Top. We’ve manufactured custom fabric buildings since 1979, and we have built countless structures for businesses in various industries. Our fabric buildings are made of galvanized steel frames that are recyclable. They are also available with translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through, eliminating the need for artificial lighting. Because it is translucent and not transparent, our fabric also has great insulating properties that can help maintain a comfortable ambient temperature within the building without relying solely on HVAC. All of these energy-saving features can lead to points on a LEED score.
At Big Top, we customize each and every fabric building we make for the task at hand. If you are looking to improve your LEED score, we can help. Not only can our energy-efficient buildings lead to short-term and long-term financial gain, but they are also, quite simply, for the greater good. According to the United States Green Building Council, LEED certified buildings have 34 percent lower carbon dioxide emissions, consume 25 percent less energy and 11 percent less water, and have diverted more than 80 million tons of waste from landfills. It’s truly a win-win.
