  • Reducing a Building's Appetite for Energy, Water and Materials
    March 20, 2014

    Sustainable architecture is our industry's declaration that tomorrow shalll have a voice in what we do today. The extent to which we value and attend to that voice not only sets our course, but that of future generations as well. It's not so much that this heightens our responsibility - for certainly it does - but rather it raises our opportunity. As we answer the voice of tomorrow, opportunity extends from product manufacturers to building sites and into every community. These are the opening lines of an article in edc magazine authored by C/S' VP & General Manager, Howard Williams. The article appears on page 22; read on and be inspired.

  • Resilient Design: Building Long-Term Care Facilities
    March 20, 2014

    Resiliency demonstrates the ability to recover or adapt to change — to withstand external influence and become healthy again after disaster strikes. A community's ability to be resilient is both its strength and its endurance in the face of an uncertain future. In a world experiencing increasing adverse weather conditions, we as manufacturers, designers, planners, and governmental entities designing products, buildings and cities must ask: how will this object survive the next Hurricane Sandy or Katrina? How can it reduce impact for the next drought? How can it prevent severe physical damage and extended chaos? How can it protect essential infrastructure? How can it keep people safe?

  • Construction Specialties is Our Pick for 'Best Green Booth Design' at Greenbuild 2013
    December 4, 2013
    inhabitat.com
    One of the great ironies of Greenbuild is the disconnect between the myriad of “green” products and the anything-but-green booths in which companies show their wares. In relief to the candy-colored plastic and vinyl clad arrangements, Construction Specialties used a low-tech paper tower to show off their high-tech green chemistry. By putting the message of sustainability in materials first, CS gets our nod as the best booth at Greenbuild 2013.

  • You protect your walls, doors and fabrics why not your floors?
    September 11, 2013
    fcica.com
    Just like a home, every building has a main entrance and this entrance handles a constant flow of people and deliveries. Entrances are where the battle begins for the maintenance crew to maintain a safe, slip-resistant and clean indoor environment. So, why not fight the battle at the source rather than letting dirt travel further inside the building? Not addressing the maintenance issue at the door allows the dirt and water to travel further inside the building, which takes extra effort from your skilled workforce to keep it clean. Who has the money for that? (Continue reading on page 16)

  • Disclosing toxic chemicals
    July 29, 2013
    thehill.com
    We all take risks, but accurately assessing them doesn't come naturally to us. From the Gulf of Mexico oil spill to the collapse of the financial sector, people have taken risks without fully understanding their potential impact. Toxic chemicals present another set of poorly understood risks that can have serious health and environmental consequences. Chemicals policy reform can help us deal with those risks.
