With over 20 years of experience and engineering going into each and every gymnasium floor, Community Centers and Fellowship halls, Rhino Sports Inc has been committed to operating its business through processes that use resources wisely and protects quality of the environment. Rhino Sports has made the health and safety of families and communities a priority since day one.
Rhino Sports gymnasium flooring, gym flooring, fitness flooring, physical therapy flooring, community center flooring, and church and fellowship flooring are designed to meet stringent criteria required to earn points for New Construction and Major Renovations (LEED-NC). Based on these criteria, Rhino Sports can assist architects and designers in obtaining points toward LEED certification.
"Continuing to seek the right balance between technical advancement and market transformation was a driving force behind the LEED 2009 work," explained Scot Horst, Chairman of the volunteer LEED Steering Committee, which leads the technical development of the LEED rating system. "The 'big ideas' we've proposed include transparent weightings of LEED credits so the highest-priority credits achieve the most points, a new mechanism for incorporating bioregional credits, and a more nimble framework that supports rapid response to emerging environmental and human health issues."
The LEED Green Building Rating System was developed by USGBC to drive market transformation in the building industry by defining a consensus metric for leadership in green building that forms a basis for continuous improvement. The evolution of LEED is based on technical, scientific and market-based advancements.
"When it was introduced in 2000, the LEED Green Building Rating System helped to spark a revolution that is changing the way we build and operate our offices, schools, hospitals and homes," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, USGBC. "LEED 2009 resets the bar for green building leadership because the urgency of our mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further."
