Building Green

Sustainable Building

As the demand steadily increases fo environmentally-friendly construction products and practices, Robertson can help you meet your sustainable building goals.

Both the American Iron and Steel Institute and Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute report that steel is the most recycled material in North America. Sustainable construction goes well beyond just recycling.  The building design and construction methods,  end use, occupants’ productivity and maintenance requirements throughout the life of the building are all considerations for the selection of building products designed to meet sustainable building objectives.

A good working definition of sustainable building is “the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources — energy, water, and materials — while reducing the impact on human health and the environment during the building’s life cycle, through site selection, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal.”

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Our priority at Robertson is to help our customers ― the designers, builders and developers who use our products, reach their building project objectives by providing ideas, education and solutions.
