FEDERAL WAY, WA — The National Association of Home Builders Research Center, a subsidiary of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), has awarded its Green Approved label to structural frame products from iLevel by Weyerhaeuser, according to Reuters.
The research center introduced its Green Approved program this year to attest that products bearing the label are eligible for earning points under the National Green Building Standard toward green certification of a building — provided the products are used in a way that enables them to be considered.
The iLevel engineered wood products and solid sawn lumber were the first to receive the Green Approved label. They include TJI joists, TimberStrand laminated strand lumber, Parallam parallel strand lumber, Microllam laminated veneer lumber, iLevel Framer Series Lumber, iLevel Premium Joists and all other wood structural framing products in the iLevel line.
