Palagio Engineering, Atlantic Link’s partner in providing terracotta ventilated rainscreen wall cladding systems, has always been conscientious towards the environment. They develop and maintain the highest quality control through the total production process—from raw material to recycling—with the least environmental impact. The benefits of the system contribute to LEED points.

A Wall Cladding System that Contributes to LEED Points

What are LEED Points & Why Do They Matter?

LEED is a rating system verifying that a building’s design, construction, operations and maintenance follow green standards. LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.

“LEED certification means healthier, more productive places, reduced stress on the environment by encouraging energy and resource-efficient buildings, and savings from increased building value, higher lease rates and decreased utility costs. In fact, 88 of the Fortune 100 companies are already using LEED.”

How It Works

LEED projects earn points across nine basic areas that address key aspects of green buildings:

  1. Integrative process
  2. Location and transportation
  3. Sustainable sites
  4. Water efficiency
  5. Energy and atmosphere
  6. Materials and resources
  7. Indoor environmental quality
  8. Innovation
  9. Regional priority

Based on the number of LEED points earned, projects earn one of four LEED rating levels:
