LEED Information

Alabama Metal Industries Corporation is striving to ensure that our products and facilities contribute to a sustainable environment. We are a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and support suppliers that share our commitment to a sustainable environment.

AMICO’s products can help you achieve LEED points in the following Categories:

Energy and Atmosphere

EA Credit 1 – Optimize Energy Performance: Achieve increasing levels of energy performance above the baseline in the prerequisite standard to reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use.

By using AMICO products such as Expanded, Perforated or Bar Grating as sun shades or as an exterior facade, solar gain into the building is reduced, in turn reducing the amount of energy required to run HVAC systems.

EA Credits 8.1 and 8.2 – Indoor Environmental Quality – Provide for the building occupants a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of the building (75% – 90%)

AMICO products used in applications such as facades or sunshades can help maximize day lighting opportunities while decreasing artificial lighting and also heating and cooling costs.

Materials and Resources

MR Credits 2.1 and 2.2 – Construction Waste Management: Divert construction and demolition debris from disposal in landfills and incinerators.

With the majority of AMICO products being produced from Steel, any construction waste generated can and should be included in your construction waste management plan.

MR Credits 4.1 and 4.2 – Recycled Content: Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.

With the majority of AMICO products being produced from North America ‘s most recycled material, steel, MR Credits 4.1 or 4.2 can be easily achieved.

MR Credits 5.1 and 5.2 – Regional Materials: Increase demand for building materials and products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site.

AMICO’s 11 manufacturing facilities are strategically placed across North America and purchase raw materials from vendors in close proximity to these locations. MR Credits 5.1 or 5.2 can be obtained in most instances.
