LEED certification is the hallmark of a green building and these structures are built with a variety of green products that help towards achieving LEED certification. One of these green products is iCrete's specially formulated concrete; the concrete is not only sustainable but it is stronger than traditional concrete.
ICrete products are being used in various construction projects across the nation including the Freedom Tower One World Trade Center in New York City. The company has now joined forces with a leader in West coast LEED building construction, California-based Webcor Builders.
Webcor Builders has been in business for decades and has had their hand in some of California's most prestigious green building projects including the LEED Platinum certified California Academy of Sciences. Webcor is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and "earned more revenue in 2007 from LEED-qualifying buildings than it did from traditional buildings, and in 2008 the trend for increased LEED revenue continued."

Webcor is now teaming up with iCrete to offer clients the use of "a significantly stronger concrete that optimizes raw material, is easier to work with, and protects the environment with reduced greenhouse gas emissions." Source: iCrete
Green products plus a green builder equal certified green buildings.
