Sustainable Replacements for Concrete Blocks in Natural Soil Colors

Integrity Block manufactures sustainable building materials that are replacements for concrete blocks. The company's mission is to deliver products that are environmentally friendly and that meet the same performance standards as existing materials.

Their website states that "Integrity Block is no more expensive than standard concrete block (concrete masonry unit/CMU)". Their product has equivalent structural strength and meet all relevant ASTM standards for load bearing concrete masonry units (ASTMC-90).

Greener Replacement with Same Block Construction Techniques

The blocks can be used in place of CMU with no change to the building process. This addresses another challenge with going green -- trade workers don't need to learn new skills or change their work patterns.

Seamless concrete block replacement for structural, architectural and landscape applications can generate value LEED credits in the areas of optimizing energy performance, recycled content, regional materials and innovation and design (based on the project).

Based in Silicon Valley, the company was founded in 2007 and has brought cleantech investors into their advisory board to help lower the cost of construction while helping the environment.
