WHY CHOOSE US
At Mid America Metals going ‘Green’ is more than just a catchphrase, it’s a priority every day. We believe that we have an obligation to reduce our impact on the environment and conserve our natural resources for future generations. Being environmentally responsible is not a one day job, it’s a complete change in our company culture. That’s why we’ve created two ‘Green Teams’ that look at ways to continuously improve the environmental impact of our operations at our customer’s buildings and in our offices. Our Research and Development
Center has been busy for several years testing various LEED compliant and low VOC products. Our team has even been working with chemical manufactures to come up with products that meet the rigorous LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. We work hard every day to be socially and environmentally responsible because we value your business, our employees, the environment, and our future generations.
Below are just a few of the things we are currently doing.
Use of LEED Compliant and Low VOC Products
Continuing our efforts to find and use products that meet LEED and VOC limits
- Use of Green Processes
We promote green processes on our jobsites, in our offices and at home
- Green Bi-Weekly Meetings
A time when we can share our successes and brainstorm new ideas for going green
Our owner and Director of Safety/R&D have been trained by Green Advantage, which is the longest-standing certification program for building related practitioners. We also regularly educate our crews and Account Representatives on the latest LEED compliant products and processes.
Every effort is made to recycle everything from paper to ink cartridges
- Office Conservation Practices
Many of our offices use CFL bulbs, programmable thermostats, soy ink, ‘green’ carpeting, low VOC paint, recycled paper, and energy efficient computers. Our corporate office has just installed a state-of-the-art document management system to limit the use of paper.
