Did you know 2% of your building cost could contribute up to 27% of its LEED certification points?

Paints and coatings are one of the most inexpensive building costs on a construction or refurbishment project. In fact, on average only 2% of the costs associated are attributed to these products.

Jotun’s paints and coatings are a cost effective and aesthetic method of protecting any structure, while being conscious of the long-term effects to the environment, in both application and upkeep. These considerations are evident when analysing the make up of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

The company’s Green Building Solutions (GBS) products can help achieve different levels of LEED certification. For obtaining the ‘certified’ level of accreditation, Jotun can contribute up to 27% of the required points. Even at the highest level of certification, the ‘platinum’ rating which is over 80 points, Jotun can contribute up to 14% of the points accumulated. This is a staggering amount of attribution to an element that is such a small overall cost in the development of a building.

Global green building construction doubles every three years, proving this style is a growing trend. Jotun’s GBS are the market’s easiest way to design, specify, protect and beautify buildings.

The Green Building Solutions comply to demands in LEED – and can help your project fulfil the green building standards of the future.
