Building “Green”

A sustainable design combines built-in features and materials to help control the environmental impact the building has on the land.  JS Management and Construction is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). USGBC and Cool Roof Rating Council provide education and information on industry standards and goals for builders participating in sustainable design practices. Our buildings:

  • Use recycled materials – all of Varco Pruden’s steel components are made of 100% reusable/recyclable alloy.
  • Are recyclable/reusable in the future – metal buildings can be relocated and reused; they are adaptable to many different uses.
  • Are energy efficient – a range of energy-efficiency enhancing components are available for each building design. Insulated panels are one part of an energy efficient build.
  • Use Cool Roof materials – ThermalClad insulated wall and roof panels as well as Cool Roof color coatings provide superior insulation value.

Environmental organizations and programs Varco Pruden participates in include:

  • Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC)
  • Energy Star® certified products
  • US Green Building Council
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™
