going green

Green building. It is an important consideration for just about any commercial building project. Incorporating green building materials into a new or existing commercial building can provide the owner and/or occupant with compelling environmental, economic, and health benefits.

The push for green materials is still a relatively new phenomenon in the commercial marketplace, and navigating the world of truly green products is not always easy.

Green building is defined by the International Interior Design Association as:

... any material or construction method which does not utilize non-renewable and/or non-recycled material or energy sources. Non-renewable materials are those which come from sources which, once depleted, are gone forever, such as petroleum, some minerals, and old-growth hardwoods.

Green also refers to systems which embody less energy in their manufacturing process or use less energy when in use.

Whether it is a closed-loop product that is almost 100% recycled, or a long lifecycle product, such as a woven carpet that is designed to last for up to 20 years, the experts at Tri-State Carpet will assist you finding products that are truly green for your space.
