Keeping Up With the Greens

Regardless of which side of the border our customers are on, the complexity and variability of GREEN BUILDING can pose significant challenges for all of us. To help with this important work, Lynden Door has an excellent resource in Senior Engineer Dick Moreno. Dick is "our man in Paris" when it comes to all things green & LEED® and he really does a great job of keeping up with standards, rating systems, codes and certifications for Lynden Door.

The resources are centered on the Lynden Door website, under the GreenDor® tab. For instance, on this page, http://www.lyndendoor.com/greendor/leed, all of the following PDFs are available to help work through specs and requests for products that meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards:
