With it's proven track record for durability, concrete masonry promotes sustainable communities by reducing cycles of development and redevelopment. The extended life-cycle of masonry buildings allows for the reuse of existing structures.
Concrete masonry units are manufactured with recycled content and can be recycled into new masonry units or aggregates. Read more about Tileco Inc.'s manufacturing practices
Our concrete masonry units are manufactured in Hawaii using locally-sourced materials, minimizing transportation and fuel consumption.
Because concrete masonry absorbs and disperses heat slowly, buildings require minimal energy and less insulation to produce consistent temperatures. This results in significantly lower engergy costs.
Concrete masonry also requires less specialized equipment and very little staging area for construction, further reducing impacts on the environment.
