Building Green

A typical building’s annual energy costs represent 30 percent of their annual budget and are the single largest operating cost. Some of the business advantages to building green include the following:


Decreased Operating Costs


Increased Building Value


Increased Occupancy


Increased Rent Ratio

Utilizing natural light is among the key ingredients to achieve energy-efficiency. Using sky lights, white-lined insulation, and a bright finish on columns, enables customers to significantly cut down on operational costs.

Buildings are becoming a substantial target in consumption-saving actions , similar to the assessments of motor vehicles for the past 30 years. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), buildings account for 40 percent of all energy consumed in the U.S., 71 percent of electricity, 38 percent of carbon dioxide emissions and 36 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions.


Allied Prismatic Skylights

Delivering substantial amounts of natural light to interior spaces Prismatic Skylights remove the need for artificial lighting. They capture indirect light by bending the sun’s rays up to 30 degrees. Without more heat gain they provide:

  • 13 Times more light than Incandescent Bulbs
  • 2 Times more light than Fluorescent Lamps
  • Let in up to 30% more light
  • Block 98% ultraviolet light
Cool Colors for Metal Roofing

Cool Colors for metal roofing offer energy savings that are substantial for both economic and environmental perspectives.

  • Many of our colors have reflectivity performance levels that meet Energy Star criteria at 2:12 pitch or greater
  • Our Roof Panels are made from 25-35% recycled materials are 100% recyclable products
  • They are sustainable, energy-efficient, durable, lightweight and cost effective!
Insulated Panels

Our Insulated Panels meet U.S. Green Building Councils Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System requirements. The blowing agent (insulant) Pentane, inside our insulated panels have:

  • An Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) rating of zero
  • Either zero or a very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) potential (less than .00044), compared to former blowing agents that have an ODP rating of 0.055, and a GWP of 1700
Solar Panels

The use of solar panels significantly reduces costs by reducing the amount of electricity provided by your utility company.

  • Can provide as much as 70-80% of your hot water needs for a year
  • Emits no carbon dioxide, does not produce greenhouse gases, and uses no finite fossil-fuel resources
  • Systems will last up to 25 to 30 years
