Provincial Partitions is Going “GREEN”
At Provincial Partitions we have always been committed to incorporate only the very best materials that are available into our modular product offering. With an equal emphasis on corporate environmental responsibility, we now make a similar commitment to ensuring that we only use products that are environmentally friendly.
Provincial Partitions is “Going Green” by incorporating green building products and materials into our temporary and permanent office and classroom space products. In fact, in an effort to improve our manufacturing capabilities here at Provincial Partitions we purchased and installed a completely automated vinyl board laminating production line from BPB Canada Inc. Our decision to go with BPB Canada Inc. was largely influenced by their initiative to insure that all their gypsum product line is LEED certified. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. A LEED accreditation is evidence of a commitment to providing the very best in environmental design. We salute BPB Canada’s commitment and make a similar commitment to use only LEED accredited material in our entire vinyl board product offering.
Provincial Partitions is also pleased to make available our new PROKIT® line of Steel framing products for floor, wall and roof sections. With growing environmental concerns and a dwindling forest cover, steel framing is making a positive impact on the future of our environment. Steel is 100% recyclable, making PROKIT™ a sustainable building method that uses environmentally responsible products. Provincial Partitions’ commitment to using steel is consistent with our corporate mandate to provide “green” building innovations for our entire customer base.
According to the North American Insulation Manufactures Association, fiber glass insulation is the largest secondary market for recycled glass containers. The recycled glass used in fiber glass insulation saves more than 27 million cubic feet of landfill space every year. That’s 2.2 billion pounds of recycled post-consumer glass.
Additionally, we believe that modular construction is inherently green when compared to conventional construction methods. For instance, modular buildings can be disassembled and relocated for re-purposing, thereby reducing the demand for new raw materials. This also means that less energy is consumed in creating a new building.
