To meet the criteria for green building, a product needs to be “sustainable.” But what does sustainable mean?
Most natural resources are finite. If we squander those resources today, we compromise the lives and options of future generations.
Steel’s two main ingredients are iron and recycled steel.
Iron is one of the Earth’s most plentiful elements. However, the real secret of steel’s sustainability is its amazing recycling abilities:
A product must have at least 25% recycled content to be considered a “green” material. All structural steel today contains a high recycled content. RHINO steel building framing contains as much as 90.7% recycled content.
The LEED system (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) awards structural steel its maximum numerical rating.
The steel industry has made amazing strides in minimizing the environmental impacts of steel production.
Steel lasts far longer than other building materials, extending the lifespan of a structure and further reducing the environmental impact.
Pre-engineered systems take maximum advantage of the strength of steel. Modern computer design and engineering software allows steel building producers to create the strongest, most durable structure possible— with the minimum amount of steel.
Everything in a pre-engineered metal building package is cut, formed, welded, drilled, and marked at the factory. Framing is assembled at the job site, like an adult-sized erector set. Waste is kept to a minimum. Whatever steel remains is sold to a metal recycler.
Be a part of the solution— not part of the pollution. Build stronger, safer, and smarter with prefabricated steel buildings from RHINO using sustainable building materials.
