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.
