IES Announces its USGBC LEED Automation Partnership at Greenbuild 2012

New innovative technology, consulting expertise and partnerships expand the IES Hub for a more sustainable built environment

Boston – November 14, 2012 – Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES), a provider of integrated performance analysis software and consulting services for sustainable building design, today announced it will be exhibiting at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Greenbuild International Conference and Expo for the ninth consecutive year. IES will showcase its USGBC LEED Automation partnership and the expansion of its ‘IES Hub' partnership program at booth 1732S.


USGBC's LEED Automation program connects leading technology companies to the robust data platform that powers LEED Online and a diverse suite of third-party applications. Many recent IES innovations and developments significantly help streamline and assist the LEED certification process, including its new online LEED project management software, IES TaP for LEED 2009, advancements in its automated credit assessment and sophisticated LEED energy modelling tools, VE-Navigator for LEED and VE-Navigator for ASHRAE 90.1.

The ‘IES Hub' partnership program was launched at Greenbuild 2011 and is continuing to expand. Through integrated services, IES combines innovative technology with extensive consulting expertise to cut through greenwash. The Hub allows a variety of built-environment stakeholders to take advantage of IES's unique proposition.

"The Sustainability Hub allows you to quantify, optimize and verify sustainable and energy efficient building practices in an integrated way throughout the building lifecycle." said Don McLean. "IES is co-ordinating the analysis needs of a wide range of sustainability providers and consumers from manufacturers and software companies to building owners."

The application of Virtual Building technology from design, through construction and commissioning on into operation and renovation/adaptation offers a 3D platform upon which Smart building principles can be built. In order to transform the use of analysis technology and deliver the latest innovations in sustainable design, IES commits around 30 percent of expenditure to Research & Development and participates in numerous collaborative funding projects.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
