Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences Chooses Sustainable Eco-Cem
MIAMI, December 21, 2017 (Newswire.com) - COVERINGS ETC is proud to be featured on the walls of the Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences. Eco-Cem was chosen as one of the sustainable materials for the school's exterior wall cladding. The Natural Grey Eco-Cem was thoughtfully used to create a modern aesthetic with a subtle industrial look.
Eco-Cem is engineered from 80 percent recycled portland cement mixed with fly ash that has been saved from contaminating waterways, plus 20 percent recycled wood pulp. It contains no resins, no epoxys and zero VOCs. Eco-Cem is a breathable material that improves indoor air quality. Rectified and calibrated, it's easy to install and simple to maintain.
Crossroads School provides a unique K-12 program built on a progressive, developmental model of education. The school was built upon five basic commitments: to academic excellence; to the arts; to the greater community; to the development of a student population of social, economic and racial diversity; and to the development of each student’s physical well-being and full human potential.
I'm very happy to see the increase in use of fiber cement in interior and exterior applications. Fiber cement is a classic product.
