As a manufacturer, Hufcor recognizes the importance of innovation in sustainable design. Hufcor partitions are manufactured with raw materials such as gypsum, steel, aluminum, glass and wood. Specified percentages of these materials can contribute to the achievement of LEED points in the Materials and Resources Category of the LEED rating system. The materials in Hufcor products can also contribute to the achievement of LEED points in the Indoor Environmental Quality and Regional Materials categories. Use of glasswall partitions may contribute to the 8.2 Daylight and Views category. As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Hufcor is committed to being an industry leader when it comes to protecting the environment, by reducing pollutants and minimizing our environmental impact on air, water and land.
Mapes glazing and extruded aluminum products can perform at higher levels beyond the scope of the standards in the LEED rating system. In such cases, project teams have several options when specifying Mapes high performance architectural systems, including a request for a Credit Interpretation Ruling (CIR) from the USGBC Technical and Scientific Advisory Committee. Another strategy is to document the exemplary performance of Mapes assemblies from a whole building design perspective in the LEED Innovation in Design credit category.
