“We recognized a need in the industry to provide this type of comprehensive information,” said Art Mintie, Laticrete Director, Technical Services. “The data that’s provided is necessary for any project seeking LEED certification, and we found it extremely time consuming to manually gather the required information. This was driven by a need in the industry as the green building movement continues to grow. Architects, specifiers, installers and distributors can have this information in their hand in seconds instead of the weeks it might take otherwise. Having this type of information upfront aids all parties involved in projects seeking LEED certification.”
