There are a number of sponsors that have already chosen to participate in the VISION House Los Angeles. Structure Home and Green Builder Media are excited to be working with all of them and wanted to share some of the products that are planned to be implemented in the VISION House.
The drinking water lines, PEX tubing, manifolds, and radiant floor heating system have been donated by Uponor. Uponor’s thermal floor heating system is designed to have warm water circulate through flexible, specially designed PEX tubing (plastic tubing with distinctive properties) which is installed in the concrete slab on the first floor and in a quick track system on the second floor. The heat radiates evenly up through the floor warming people and objects in the room and providing more comfort for less money.
The cabinetry is being donated by Kitchen Craft® Cabinetry, part of the MasterBrand Cabinetry family. Kitchen Craft was founded in 1972 and has been a part of MasterBrand Cabinetry since 2002.
Kitchen Craft is certified through the KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer’s Association) Environmental Stewardship Program. KCMA’s annual certification means companies must meet all of the KCMA requirements including air quality, product resource management, process resource management, environmental stewardship, and community relations. In more detail, the company must demonstrate the use of low formaldehyde containing raw materials along with all local and federal hazardous air pollutant regulations. Companies must also demonstrate the use of recycled and sustainable products and have active recycling and energy conservation programs in place. In addition, the company must have a written environmental policy, environmental management system in place, and must show their community involvement through service or charitable organizations.
Kitchen Craft and MasterBrand Cabinetry are proud to be certified by KCMA which authenticates their high level of commitment to the environment and sustainability of natural resources.
