MIDLAND, Va. – Smith-Midland Corporation (SMC) announced today that the SlenderWall  system meets LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Standards, providing a contribution of up to 14 points toward LEED Certification.  The SlenderWallsystem was reviewed by the Construction Testing Laboratory (CTL), an independent testing lab.  CTL rendered an opinion regarding SlenderWall’S contribution toward LEED’s Certification for the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) strict criteria designed to promote sustainable buildings for the conservation of energy and resources and the protection of the environment.  The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

According to the CTL report, LEED’s points are awarded for environmentally friendly actions taken during design, construction and use phases of a building project.  If designed and built according to accepted principles of energy conservation and environmental protection, SlenderWallcan be used to contribute on up to 14 points in the version 2.2 of LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations.  “This recognition underscores Smith-Midland’s commitment to environmental stewardship, which is a critical part of our company’s vision,” said Ashley Smith, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for SMC.  “This achievement is only the beginning as we continue to make design enhancements to the SlenderWallsystem to contribute on additional LEED credits.”
