Saint Pierre - Limestone
Neutral, chocolate-brown shades are blended with swirling charcoal grey veins that float throughout the surface and mix with occasional shell fragments in this distinguished limestone.
Hard-wearing and durable, it features a fine grain and compact mineral structure with inclusions of fossilized marine organisms that add visual interest. It can also be cut in a linear pattern that highlights its pronounced veining.

|Materials & Resources||Resource Reuse: 5% & 10% (1-2 pts)||3.1 & 3.2||Use salvaged, refurbished or reused materials, products and furnishings for 5% to 10% of the total cost of building material||Manufacturer regularly sources product to refinish and refurbish from existing demolition projects such as historic buildings. Contact Manufacturer for specific information.|
|Materials & Resources||Regional Materials: 10% & 20% (Extracted and Manufactured Regionally) (1-2 pts)||5.1 & 5.2||10% to 20% of all project materials (by weight) to be extracted and manufactured within 800km - 2400km via truck or rail respectively.||Due to the location of our quarries and installation, our granite and marble are considered local products mainly in the North East of the United States and the East Coast in general. See our location map.|
|Materials & Resources||Construction Waste Management: 50% & 75% (1-2 pts)||2.1 & 2.2||Divert 50% to 75% project construction waste from landfill||Manufacturer does not have a take back program, however, due to the value of the product it is rarely sent to the landfill. *Dependent on contractor.|
|Indoor Environmental Quality||Construction IAQ management plan: During Construction (1 pt)||3.1||“Materials that are potentially noxious should be identified by the project architect, and control measures specified, as described in the SMACNA guidelines.” (CaGBC recommendation but NOT part of the required LEED submittals).||This product may off-gas a very small amount of Radon. *This is not part of LEED required submittals.* Dependent on architect.|
|Materials & Resources||Durable Building (1 pt)||8.0||Develop and implement a Durable Building Plan. This includes choosing durable materials and components which reduce the need for new materials and the environmental costs of resource extraction, production processes and waste disposal.||If product is well maintained: Low traffic interior = 150+ years, High traffic interior = 40+ years. Low traffic exterior = 75+ years. Well maintained countertops can last 150+ years. Results may vary.|
