We’re always paying attention to what industry publications are saying about PROSOCO and its products that improve the appearance and performance of sustainable buildings.
But when we receive recognition from a consumer website as well-read and far-reaching as the Huffington Post, well, it really makes our day. It’s encouraging to see our message go beyond the construction industry. Especially when it’s about a project that’s as near and dear to us as Seattle’s Bullitt Center.
The article, written by Lynne Peeples and published in the site’s “green” section, talks about how the commercial building was constructed using exactly zero of more than 360 identified elements and compounds that are believed to be potentially toxic to humans. Given that Americans today spend about 90 percent of their time indoors, it’s becoming more and more important that buildings are made using green materials, the article states.
PROSOCO is specifically named near the end of the article:
“The researchers even worked with one manufacturer, PROSOCO, to reformulate its ‘liquid-applied air and water barrier’ without phthalates.”
The product referenced – PROSOCO’s R-GUARD® FastFlash® air and water barrier system — helped the Bullitt Center become net-zero energy-efficient, one of the facets of the Living Building Challenge.
