The green in pavers

April 11, 2009

Clay brick, whether used as a building material for houses and office buildings, or as clay pavers in streets, sidewalks, patios and driveways, has been an example of a sustainable building material for centuries, according to industry observers.

– unsurpassed life cycle
– energy efficient
– Made from an abundant raw material
– minimal manufacturing waste
– recyclable

Clay pavers also don’t require pallet packaging and the amount of embodied energy required to mine, manufacture and transport one standard brick is about 4,000 British thermal units per pound, less per pound than concrete, glass, steel or aluminum, according to the AIA Environmental Resource Guide.
