Bautex Systems President Joins USGBC Central Texas Balcones Chapter Board

Bautex Systems, LLC, a Texas-based man­u­fac­tur­er of high-per­for­mance insulated concrete wall com­po­nents, is pleased to announce that Paul Brown has joined the Board of the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Central Texas Balcones Chapter as an Alternate Director.

The USGBC is the nation’s leading nonprofit orga­ni­za­tion promoting sus­tain­able con­struc­tion, and has developed the Lead­er­ship in Energy and Envi­ron­men­tal Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ in order to educate and promote envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship and con­struc­tion best practices. The Central Texas Balcones Chapter supports the Austin, San Antonio and South Texas markets, providing education oppor­tu­ni­ties through­out the region.

The Central Texas Balcones Chapter is fully committed to market trans­for­ma­tion here and statewide, said Scott Gerhardt, Acting Chair for USGBC Central Texas Balcones Chapter. Paul brings a valuable per­spec­tive and expertise to our Board of Directors as a Texas-based man­u­fac­tur­er of sus­tain­able building products and we are very excited to have him on our Board.”

Bautex man­u­fac­tures a composite insu­lat­ing concrete form (ICF) wall system from their man­u­fac­tur­ing facility in San Marcos, Texas. The Bautex Wall System is a high-per­for­mance insulated concrete wall system that provides energy effi­cien­cy, fire resis­tance, storm debris pro­tec­tion, and noise mit­i­ga­tion in a single inte­grat­ed solution. The Bautex Block, the basic building unit of the Bautex Wall System, utilizes a sig­nif­i­cant quantity of recycled materials.

One of the keys to advancing sus­tain­able con­struc­tion and improving building science is testing and ver­i­fi­ca­tion of con­struc­tion materials and methods as well as actual completed projects,” Mr. Brown shared. Building materials man­u­fac­tur­ers are in a unique position to help provide per­for­mance testing and design guidance to con­struc­tion pro­fes­sion­als, with the goal of working with designers and con­struc­tion pro­fes­sion­als to improve the built envi­ron­ment. I am very excited to join the USGBC Central Texas Balcones board in con­tin­u­ing to promote sus­tain­able and sensible con­struc­tion practices.”

Bautex is a member of the USGBC National orga­ni­za­tion and the Central Texas Balcones Chapter.
