RMC Foundation releases third edition of Ready Mixed Concrete Industry LEED Reference Guide

The RMC Research & Education Foundation has released the Third Edition of its Ready Mixed Concrete Industry LEED Reference Guide (LEED Guide).

The revised edition incorporates new LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations (LEED 2009 NC) information and provides guidance on how concrete may contribute to gaining LEED points for construction projects seeking certification in the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. The LEED Guide was originally published in 2005.

The LEED Guide can be downloaded from the foundation’s Website at www.rmc-foundation.org. It is also available as part of the Foundation’s free Research Supporting Sustainable Development CD. Hardcopies of the LEED Guide are available for purchase for a nominal fee from NRMCA at www.nrmca.org. The mission of the RMC Research & Education Foundation is to support research and educational programs that will increase professionalism and quality in the concrete industry.
