Our steel building systems adhere to the LEED green building rating system
As of October 30, 2016, the U.S. Green Building Council transitioned from LEED v2009 to LEED v4. According to the USGBC, LEED v4 has been developed to reflect a life-cycle assessment-type approach, which may provide a more comprehensive view regarding the sourcing of materials. Additional information on LEED v4 is available at www.usgbc.org.
New Millennium Building Systems will continue to provide MR4 Recycled Content and MR5 Regional Materials information for LEED v2009 projects as requested. Recycled content, regional materials and environmental product declaration information can also be provided to accommodate LEED v4 projects.
We continue a deep-rooted commitment to sustainability by primarily using steel sourcing from domestic electric arc furnace mills. Scrap steel is the primary ingredient for EAF mills, or mini-mills, which is why the steel industry is a leader in recycling and sustainability.
LEED Letter provides the current “recycled content” information from each of our facilities. The average breakdown may vary at the time of production depending on coil availability and coil source.
