Britespan Building Systems Inc. are strongly committed to environmental stewardship. We strive to manufacture steel framed fabric structures that meet all of the LEED certification guidelines as outlined by the US Green Building Council
and the Canada Green Building Council
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.
No toxic chemicals are used in the production of our Synergy Non-FR or FR Fabric covers.
All scraps and used covers are 100% recyclable. Fabrene Polyethylene is 100% ECO friendly and recyclable. Approximately 5% of fabric waste is recycled, re-pelletized back into the mix, the carbon footprint for manufacturing the fabric is reduced by 60% vs. PVC, it is chlorine/ plasticizer free, and it is recognized as a Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Britespan's temporary and portable structures allow us to construct building that have little to no environmental impact, leaving a building site in its original state. The natural light that our fabric covers let into our buildings significantly reduces energy costs and emissions. A fabric building from Britespan will allow you to apply for LEED certification for your building project.
