Belgard Hardscapes announces partnership with The Green Schoolhouse Series
Belgard contributes environmental permeable pavers to the construction of a LEED® Platinum-designed school
Belgard® Hardscapes, a leading provider of interlocking pavers and segmental wall products, announced that it is supplying Eco Dublin™ interlocking permeable pavers, solar paver lights and Castleguard® edge restraints to The Green Schoolhouse Series. Belgard Hardscapes is proud to be a building partner in this meaningful initiative in which schoolhouses are gifted to disadvantaged public schools. Belgard Hardscapes will provide its products for a LEED® Platinum-designed green schoolhouse slated for construction in Phoenix, AZ later this year. The inaugural multipurpose, safari-themed schoolhouse, which will be built at Roadrunner Elementary School, will replace uninspired, outdated portable classrooms.
The project at Roadrunneris the first that The Green Schoolhouse Series will build along with school districts, corporations and volunteers across America.
"The Green Schoolhouses will be built using donated top-of-the-line and sustainable products like Belgard Hardscapes permeable pavers," explained Marshall G. Zotara, Co-founder of The Green Schoolhouse Series. "Not only will the students benefit from learning in a healthier classroom setting, the donations will sustain the building for many years to come."
Belgard's environmental permeable pavers enhance their surroundings, providing aesthetic beauty and durability, while also contributing to LEED® certification and storm water management solutions. Belgard permeable pavers:
- Reduce pollution from rain water runoff
- Reduce runoff from common rainstorms by as much as 100 percent
- Have a 50-year lifecycle for surface
- Out-perform similar systems in harsh climates or freeze thaw cycles
- Replace detention/retention ponds
