Oct. 17, 2007: MCAA Introduces Greencontractors.us Website
In presenting the Website, Kruse said, “I believe this new and exciting market is all about strategic alliances, best value construction, and knowledge transfer, and this new Website is designed to help MCAA contractors grow their knowledge base.”
The new site includes the members-only Contractor’s Guide to LEED, which explains the impact of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for New Construction credits for mechanical, service, and plumbing contractors. For each element of the LEED for New Construction rating system, the role of contractors in obtaining these credits is identified, and each element can be downloaded. Additional plans are underway to showcase MCAA members’ green projects, Manufacturer/Supplier Council members’ green products, a wikipedia, and a blog.
