LEED points for recycled steel

New Millennium steel joists and deck products are fabricated from steel manufactured at mini-mills using scrap steel. Therefore, our product can be used towards points under the Materials and Resources Credit 4, which covers Recycled Content

Under MR Credit 4 you can obtain up to 2 points towards LEED certification if you use materials with recycled content such that the postconsumer recycled content plus 1/2 of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost, of the total value of the materials in the project.

Please see below for the current “recycled content” information from each of our facilities.

Regional Materials

Depending on the jobsite location, New Millennium joists and deck products may be considered regional materials and count towards points under the Materials and Resources Credit 5.

Under MR Credit 5, you can obtain up to 2 points towards LEED certification if using building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested, or recovered, as well as manufactured within 500 miles of the project for a minimum of 10% (1 point) or 20% (2 points), based on cost, of the total materials value. If only a fraction of a product or material is extracted, harvested or recovered and manufactured locally, then that percentage (by weight) can still contribute to the regional value.

New Millennium can provide jobsite specific information related to the Regional Materials credit upon request. Please talk to your New Millennium local sales representative, or contact the New Millennium LEED Specialist.
