Parking Garage St. Catharines

Normally we don’t associate cars and parking garages with environmental friendliness and sustainability.

The LEED® (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) building certification system by the U.S. Green Building Council is the American system of classification for sustainable buildings. Standards for environmentally friendly, resource-efficient and sustainable building are set in this system. Parking garages utilizing wire mesh facades made of stainless steel wire mesh from Haver & Boecker have been built and awarded LEED® certification.

Important to the achievement of the LEED® Certification was the high recycled content within the project. One part of this sustainability strategy is the architectural wire mesh from HAVER & BOECKER. The wire mesh façade provides a positive benefit to the energy balance of the car park, as the stainless steel mesh can be made from 90 % of recycled materials.
