“Globus Cork believes that BIM is the future for greater design efficiency and has already proven its value in early projects. Globus Cork wants to provide architects with the tools they will need to design greener buildings in the future “ said Ken Bollella, President of Globus Cork Inc. “We want to make it easy to specify cork flooring which is one of the greenest material available for flooring.”
Cork is the environmentally sound choice for flooring. The cork oak tree grown in the Mediterranean is never destroyed to produce cork products. The Cork bark is trimmed from the tree every 9 years, leaving the forest undamaged as the tree grows more bark so it is a rapidly renewable material. All the benefits of the living tree remain such as carbon reduction and forest biodiversity while the bark re-grows. Cork used by Globus Cork tiles is a recycled material made from the waste of the wine stopper industry. Globus Cork products can help companies achieve up to 5 LEED points and meet state and city green requirements. LEED points are detailed at http://www.CorkFloor.com
