Sustainability in our built environment is a complicated machine that goes beyond just the design and features of a building. The materials that go into these designs are important to consider, especially noting that the people inside spend so many hours there, and will be affected one way or another by their indoor surroundings. Following the Healthy Materials Summit last month, we again want to thank Armstrong Ceilings for understanding the importance of the materials that go into building design.
Armstrong World Industries is a global leader in the design and manufacture of innovative commercial and residential ceiling, wall and suspension system solutions. Whether the designs are for the home, office, a healthcare facility, store, restaurant, or classroom, Armstrong offers interior solutions that help to enhance comfort, save time, improve building efficiency and overall performance. These products are meant to be sustainable over long periods of time, making the immediate environment that much more protected over the course of the building's lifecycle.
Armstrong is a member of the USGBC National Chapter, as evidenced by their loyal devotion to sustainability. This devotion encompasses material transparency, health and well-being, building efficiency, end-of-life recycling, and their environmental footprint.
