Green Masonry

BAC is well aware of the need for and benefits of sound environmental practices. Masonry's "green" credentials, which include sustainability, strong energy performance and good indoor air quality, lead to improved building performance and greater occupant comfort. IMI works with designers to maximize these benefits on their projects. As environmentally conscience construction practices change the building industry, IMI makes it easy to use masonry with expert advice, tools and education.
