I am publishing this post more for an entertainment value than anything else. As I have been reviewing shop drawings and LEED submittals to make sure a certain percentage of our building materials either have some level of recycled content or are manufactured within 500 miles of our project site as dictated by the USGBC LEED-NC rating system. I am presented with this document as backup information for this companies NON-compliance with LEED and our product specifications.
As you can see I have hidden the identity of the company because there is nothing wrong with their product (fire extinguisher cabinet), and I happen to agree with their statements, however amusing it was at first to read. If we are anticipating this product to get us over the hump to meet our projects recycled content or regional material goal, then we have not been doing our job correctly.
