RW Design Focus: Sustainable Construction & LEED® Certification
Design & Construction professionals worldwide are fulfilling their responsibility to be good stewards of the earth's finite resources. We actively engage in the industry's efforts to contribute highly sustainable design & construction methods to the building industry by incorporating efficient & innovative materials & design solutions.
Our LEED® Accredited Professionals are here to guide you through the benefits utilizing precast modules for your project, from design through project close and maintenance. Our team is enhanced with LEED® Accredited staff in our Estimating, Business Development and Operations departments to ensure a thorough understanding of the LEED® driven strategy created for each project.
During the preconstruction phase, our team works with the Architect and general Contractor to maximize the contributing elements that RW's system and modules may offer to a facility or building. This strategy is built into the purchasing and mobilization plan and then ultimately to the Operations Team to execute, as applicable, at the manufacturing facility.
Precast modules provide numerous advantages over other construction methods simply due to the inherent characteristics of the materials used. RW's manufacturing method, module design, and material used provide a highly sustainable and durable construction solution.
- Precast modules are produced monolithically, reducing the number of wall to wall joints that require recurring maintenance.
- Precast modules serve as the structural load-bearing elements of a building; no superstructure is required, thus reducing the overall building footprint and allowing for a more efficient use of open space.
- RW's use of the mass wall insulation system offers substantial advantages for drastically increased energy efficiency.
