DFS Green consultants assist clients in specifying and obtaining environmentally responsible flooring products, taking into consideration the US Green Building Council's LEED standards and guidelines. We combine these standards with an evaluation of our clients' facility-specific needs and goals in order to identify an ideal flooring product selection for each area of occupancy.
There are numerous criteria to consider in determining whether a flooring product is “Green”, including resource-extraction impacts, manufacturing impacts, and indoor air quality factors among others.
All of the following factors should be taken into consideration when selecting sustainable flooring products:
Other sustainable flooring considerations include product durability, recycling alternatives, local content and transportation (within 500 miles of the point of use), and a comprehensive approach to life-cycle costs.
Once a flooring product is specified, we can also provide fulfillment services for installation, maintenance, and finally reclamation at the end of the product's life-cycle. Any of these services can be provided independently or in a bundled offering.
