Royal Concrete Concepts (RCC) has become a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), joining a community of more than 15,000 member organizations dedicated to promoting environmentally responsible, healthy buildings that are also profitable.

"We're thrilled to join the USGBC. Sustainable building has always been integral to our business," said Director of Manufacturing Operations Dan Walesky. "RCC has a long history of applying its innovative modular buildings and pre-engineered wall panel and floor systems to the numerous industries."

USGBC, the nation's leading facilitator of green building standards, certifies sustainable buildings through its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

RCC building products are designed and engineered to help project teams achieve LEED points, from both energy and environmental standpoints. In the educational sector, RCC's sustainable, economical and versatile method of construction can be applied to individual classrooms, additions or entire school complexes. The modular buildings are constructed at Royal Concrete's facilities and then assembled on site - complete with plumbing, wiring and interior design. Compared to traditional methods, fewer trucks are required to travel on site, site construction is minimized, safety is increased, and waste byproducts are reduced, saving time, money and the environment. The facilities are also energy-efficient and hurricane-resistant, making for more economical, safer learning environments.
