May 30, 2014

TAM International - Houston facilityTAM International, an independent oilfield services company providing inflatable and swellable packers, received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification for the new construction of its manufacturing facility located at 6935 Pinemont Dr. off of US Highway 290 in northwest Houston.

The LEED rating system, administered through the US Green Building Council (USGBC), is one of the leading award programs for recognizing green and sustainable construction and renovations.

“TAM is committed not only to green building, but also to providing a healthy work environment for all employees,” said Bentley Sanford, President of TAM. “Our new manufacturing facility is our second location to achieve LEED certification within the last year. I think this speaks volumes about TAM’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and the environment.”

The new facility, which opened in October of 2013, is a total of 143,000sq ft of manufacturing and office space. Built from top to bottom with LEED standards in mind, the construction process began by selecting an access-friendly site; the building is located within a half mile of 10 basic services with pedestrian access linking the building to restaurants, hotels, gas stations and other services.

The building also received credits for water efficiency and green power. Landscaping and irrigation systems are designed to reduce irrigation water consumption by 64%. TAM has also agreed to purchase 31,770,300 kWh of wind power over two years.
