FGS/PermaShine Installers Learn About LEED

OMAHA, Neb.— L&M Construction Chemicals announced that certified installers of its FGS/PermaShine polished concrete floor have attended an educational session at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas to learn about the contributions the flooring makes to LEED building projects.

"With the information L&M’s consultants provided to the installers, they can better advise LEED project teams on how an FGS/PermaShine polished concrete system assists with points toward energy efficiency, reuse and recycled content, indoor air quality and other potential LEED Credit Categories," says Greg Schwietz, president of L&M Construction Chemicals.

The GreenSpec-listed floor system provides buildings with a thermal mass and high reflectivity for improved energy efficiency and the potential for lower initial lighting requirements and long-term energy cost savings, according to the company.

In addition, the company notes, the reuse potential of an existing slab and the fly ash contained in a concrete floor can potentially gain points for LEED projects, as well as the low-VOC and VOC-free densifier, coloring systems, stain protection and conditioning products.
