Lafarge Announces Improved Online Product Guide For LEED Project Certification

Herndon, VA

Lafarge North America Inc.


From cement and gypsum to lightweight aggregates, concrete and asphalt, web-based design tool features increased content on Lafarge products for achieving green building goals.


To help design professionals save time on their next sustainable project, Lafarge has introduced a newly improved version of its interactive online product guide for LEED® project certification. The enhanced, easy-to-use product evaluation web tool features more comprehensive information on Lafarge construction materials that can be specified to help meet green building requirements under the LEED rating system.


In addition to searching information on a broad array of Lafarge cement and gypsum products, users can now research which lightweight aggregates, concrete and asphalt materials best meet the environmental and performance needs of their project. The online Guide can be searched by product or LEED credit category. Each search result will display the product name, image and description, list the LEED credit categories it applies to, and provide an explanation of how the product satisfies credit requirements. Credit categories include Sustainable Site Selection, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation in Design. The search result will also display contact information for a Lafarge representative to assist with product or project questions.


"As the leading supplier of construction materials in the U.S. and Canada, we are continually striving to improve our top quality technical support with outstanding service capabilities and innovations," said Andrew Pinneke, LEED AP and technical marketing coordinator for Lafarge. "This next-generation of our online Guide is a great way for architects, engineers and other specifiers to access Lafarge products and LEED credit information quickly and efficiently, wherever and whenever they need it."
