Troldtekt contributes positively to the LEED-certification of buildings and, together with Ramboll Group, has made ready-to-use “pdf-packages” with thorough documentation for LEED-assessors for the relevant LEED-criteria.
Please note: Troldtekt’s documentation for the criteria listed below contains confidential information and will therefore only be given to assessors.
The tables below show the specific criteria which Troldtekt can enhance for LEED certification.
A sustainable material has many aspects
Troldtekt enhances several criteria in the ‘Materials and Resources’ category. This is partly because the acoustic panels are made of 100% natural materials: wood and cement.
The fact that Troldtekt is Cradle-to-Cradle certified at silver level is also a positive contribution. In LEED 2009 New Construction, buildings with Cradle-to-Cradle certified building materials earn more points. Specifically, Troldtekt earns more points for ‘Material Ingredient Disclosure’ and ‘Material Ingredient Optimization’.
In addition, weighting is also given to Troldtekt panels for the recyclability of production waste and residual pieces at construction sites without causing problems in the biological cycle and to the fact that Troldtekt is indoor-climate labelled in the best categories.
