Architects, builders and developers of commercial buildings are embracing “green” building – best practices for design and construction that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative effects of buildings on the environments and occupants. GME AP is proud to supply products and systems that comply to the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and GBCI (Green Building Council Indonesia)’s green building rating system.
The challenge to our environment has been increasing from time to time. Architectural products from GME AP are always a smart choice for green buildings. GME AP is a leading resource for quality materials used in commercial buildings designed and constructed for LEED/GBCI certification.
GME AP professionals assist architects, developers, owners and builders in gaining LEED/GBCI certification of their building designs. GBCI is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.
LAMINAM – ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, NATURAL VOCATION
The slabs, created with natural materials such as quarry clays, granite rocks and ceramic pigments, do not release any substance into the environment and can be easily milled and recycled in other production cycles. Laminam slabs are produced adopting sustainable technology that respects the entire eco-system and is designed to reduce processing waste to a minimum and limit the use of resources. The use of hybrid kilns that combine gas and electricity significantly reduces CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. Thanks to the lightness of the 3 mm thickness, Laminam is easy to transport, thus reducing the emission of particulate matter which is harmful for the environment. Laminam’s planar, flexible and thin surface can be used to cover floors or walls or to renovate buildings without demolishing the existing surfaces.
The respect for the environment, which makes Laminam and its company philosophy stand out, has led to a photovoltaic system being installed on the roofs of the two Fiorano Modenese plants. Over a year, this system guarantees the production of around 1,050 GWh, thereby avoiding releasing 525 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. In terms of CO2 reduction, Laminam’s photovoltaic roof is equal to 105 hectares of forest, i.e. a square of about 1 km per side, and enables the company to produce 10% of its energy requirements.
