LEED Credit MR 2 (Construction Waste Management)
ClarkDietrich products are manufactured from cold-formed steel. Steel is 100% recyclable. This attribute can help when diverting construction debris from the waste stream. Recycling construction waste contributes to LEED Credits MR 2.1 and 2.2. The specific contribution will vary by project and must be determined by the contractor.
(Up to 2 pts.)
LEED Credit MR 4 (Recycled Content)
ClarkDietrich produces cold-formed steel framing products with a minimum recycled content of 34.9%, of which 24.3% is post-consumer and 9.4% is pre-consumer. Recycled content of materials contributes to LEED Credits MR 4.1 and 4.2, and possibly an Innovation in Design Credit if the project’s overall recycled content exceeds 30%. While ClarkDietrich, nationwide, has an average recycled content of 48%, we recommend using the minimum values that are based on resources from Steel Recycling Institute of 34.9% for your project calculations. If a higher content is desired, ClarkDietrich can provide this information if mill certifications are requested at time of order.
(Up to 3 pts.)
LEED Credit MR 5 (Regional Materials)
LEED Credit MR 5 requires the jobsite to be within a 500 mile radius of the manufacturing plant and from the point of extraction of raw materials. With nationwide manufacturing locations, ClarkDietrich plants, as well as our steel sources, often fall within the required 500 mile radius. Each project must be tracked from the mill to the recycling center and then these values must be weighted by recycled content percentages. If you wish to report MR 5 Credits, please submit a LEED Request Form or contact ClarkDietrich Technical Services at (888) 437-3244 for procedures.
