GSA is prioritizing low-carbon selections for the construction materials it identifies as intensive materials for construction and building projects.
On October 4, General Services Administration (GSA) issued a request for information (RFI) to learn more about the availability of domestically manufactured, locally sourced low-carbon construction materials. GSA, often referred to as the federal government's civilian landlord, is a member of the Buy Clean Task Force that is prioritizing low-carbon selections for the construction materials it identifies as intensive materials for construction and building projects. The RFI lists the “high-priority categories” as:
- Concrete, including prefabricated products
- Steel, including structural and rebar
- Flat glass, including window assemblies
- Aluminum, including curtain walls and storefronts
- Insulation, including enclosure, equipment, piping, and acoustical
- Roofing materials
- Gypsum board
- Structural engineered wood, including mass timber and cross-laminated timber
Interested parties should respond to the RFI by November 3, 2022.
