• Contributes to EA Credit – Optimize Energy performance – Modeling /BIM will need to be completed

Drexel Metals products do not qualify for Regional Materials Extracted, Processed and Manufactured under MR credit 5.1 and 5.2. In order to qualify for this credit, the product must be extracted/harvested, processed and manufactured within 500 miles of the specific project site. We consider the Regional Manufactured” credit to be a “boutique” credit for adobe, concrete and other mined local products. However, since our products are being roll-formed at the project site, we do encourage you to apply for an additional innovation credit based on our local manufacturing process which reduces the number of truckloads required to ship the finished good, the lack of packaging as a result and the use of local labor.


All Drexel Metals steel and aluminum products are – Made in the USA!
