OUR MISSION

 

AAC West LLC is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of our natural resources by using concrete products and natural earth materials that will save energy and protect our environment. We choose Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) due to the numerous superior inherent qualities and in the "Total Green Concept" the carbon foot print left behind by AAC is a fraction of that left by competing products.

 

AAC West LLC will advocate and specialize in the use of Autoclave Aerated Concrete (AAC) in the western United States for the construction of sustainable "GREEN" residential, commercial and industrial buildings. We dedicate an intense effort to educate the public about alternatives to wood and other building materials that do not compliment the environment and discourage energy savings.
