In the United States, the EPA reports that buildings account for 39% of total energy used, 12% of the total water consumption, 68% of total electricity consumption and 38% of the carbon dioxide emissions. That’s why it’s so important that we all begin building in more efficient, “greener” ways in order to reduce waste and save precious energy for a cleaner world.

The construction industry has an enormous impact on the natural environment, human health and the economy. Green building strategies can help to make economic and environmental performance more effective. That’s why the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System was created. LEED is an internationally recognized program that helps builders identify and implement practical green building design features, and also provides maintenance instruction. The certification program uses third-parties to verify builders are using environmentally sustainable practices.

Building greener begins with using recyclable materials. Perfection Architectural Systems fully endorses the greener building challenge with our use of aluminum, which is one of the most reusable, recyclable building materials available at this time. Because aluminum is 100% recyclable, it can be used again, for another building after being torn down. Aluminum can be reshaped into different designs for subsequent building projects with minimal waste. Not only is aluminum more economic and environmentally friendly, but it is also extremely durable and sustainable, and that allows for minimal maintenance repairs.

Choose Perfection Architectural Systems for your commercial aluminum walkway cover project to help ensure that you will have minimal maintenance and minimal impact on the environment. We stand behind our commitment of quality materials and superior customer service.
