Hanson Building Products, like the products we manufacture, has a history of inherent sustainability. Even so, our eye is always on the future through our people and manufacturing practices today. When you use Hanson Building Products, you can feel confident you’re making a long-term investment in a greener world.
With a history dating back to the Roman Empire, concrete is a proven, viable, lasting building product. Due to its 100-year-plus life span, concrete is one of the most energy efficient and eco-friendly building products. This means that all of Hanson’s concrete and brick products essentially have no life cycle end – not only do they last up to three times longer than other products when serving their original purpose, but they can also be recycled and re-purposed indefinitely. Thus, replacement products using depleting resources are needed far less frequently. There’s practically no waste, and contribution to landfills is dramatically reduced.
Made of primarily local, natural, non-toxic elements from the earth – sand, gravel, crushed stone or clay – Hanson’s concrete structures and clay brick are inert. They are not flammable, will not react with other materials and do not release chemicals into their surroundings.
