Lean and Green!
There are many organizations that talk about sustainability. At Blazer we practice what we preach. Our core philosophy is centered around lean manufacturing, sustainable products, and recycling and waste management. We strive for 0% waste (although we have a ways to go), and our recycling efforts have earned us several awards.
Some examples of sustainable building materials that we work with are listed below:
- - FSC certified wood products
- - Bamboo flooring
- - Non or low VOC paints and adhesives
- - Water saving plumbing fixtures
- - LED lighting
- - Radiant floor heating
- - Energy star appliances
- - Cotton & spray foam insulation
- - Linoleum
- - Paperstone
- - Solatube
- - and much, much more...
We are not limited to the products “we know”, and are willing to explore and/or try new materials.
We firmly believe in buying local as much as possible. More information about our commitment to sustainable product and construction methods is available upon request.
The level of “green” products used (aside from Blazer standard materials), and LEED or other certification is always an option for our buildings, but is based upon what the customer wants. It is our hope that most customers want to be as sustainable as possible, and we understand that budgets do not always allow for all that may be desired.
