The standard set for LBC buildings is a high one: net-zero water consumption, net-zero energy consumption and reduced construction materials, impact on people and the environment. With limited exceptions, all materials used in construction must be void of any Red List materials. The Red List is composed of items that have been identified to be phased out of production due to health and toxicity concerns; many of which are found in common building materials. The Red List includes several hundred unique chemicals.
PROSOCO is proud to have been selected as the concrete finish and air and water-resistive barrier supplier for the most notable Living Building Challenge commercial project, the Bullitt Center.
PROSOCO, in collaboration with materials suppliers, has reviewed the chemical content of these products to verify conformance with the Living Building Challenge 2.0/2.1 Materials Petal Red List.
