Green guide ratings

Achieving A+ ratings in the BRE Green guide 

Credits are available for the specification of generic A+ rated materials in the BRE Green Guide to Specification (4th edition). Generic A+ ratings* (having the lowest environmental impact) for specific building types (domestic, retail, commercial, industrial, education and health) based on elemental specifications contained in the BRE Green Guide to Specification 2008 can be achieved using Marley’s range of clay plain tiles, concrete plain tiles, and concrete interlocking tiles.

*Reference should be made to the 'The Green Guide to Specification 4th Edition 2008' (published by IHS BRE Press) to determine generic A+ ratings for the specific product application.
