GreenBuild Booth Built from Products Meeting Leading Environmental and Sustainability Standards
SCS Global Services (SCS), a leading third-party certification body for the green building industry, showcased certified products from a dozen innovative green building industry companies as the building blocks of its booth at the Greenbuild 2013 Conference and Expo this week.
“We literally built our booth from the ground up with some of the most exciting and desirable products in the industry,” said Stowe Beam, SCS Managing Director of Environmental Certification Services. “It demonstrates just how creative architects and designers can be when specifying products and materials for their LEED building project.
The artfully designed booth (#1949) features SCS certified products:
- Flooring from Tarkett (FloorScore®), TerraMai (FSC Chain-of-Custody Recycled Wood)
- Lumber from Collins (FSC Certified), EarthSource (FSC Certified) and GreenWood Tree Farm Fund (FSC Certified)

- Wall coverings from Len-Tex (Indoor Advantage Gold)
Rounding out the booth construction is the Breathe™ living wall from another SCS-certified company, DIRTT.
