The manufacturing process to make clay masonry is very efficient with almost no waste of materials. To reduce environmental impact, all unused clay is recycled and modern pollution controls have significantly reduced any production air discharges. Clay Masonry can make a significant contribution toward earning LEED points on a project. While no one product or material alone can earn LEED credit points, clay masonry can be used as part of a strategy to earn points in 15 credit categories.


Brampton Brick can help maximize the number of LEED credits you wish to achieve by producing a product specific to your design needs. We can work with you to determine what level of certification you wish to achieve and how to help get you there. Our Clay Brick and Concrete Products can be modified to achieve maximum LEED credits. Talk with your local Brampton Brick sales representative to learn how.


Brick manufacturing has made great strides toward environmental stewardship by substantially decreasing the amount of embodied energy required to produce a standard brick, and through programs to minimize waste, emissions, and impact on the environment. Brick is a durable cladding material that can be used to meet multiple sustainable design objectives in a project, whether complying with a specific environmental building rating system or not.


At Sioux City Brick, protecting the environment is important for our commitment to our current and future customers. We have committed to advanced manufacturing practices that conserve resources and promote sustainability.
