Hellas is the industry leader when it comes to protecting the environment. We believe the next generation of sports construction projects should leave a positive impact and not sacrifice ecological or social necessities.
Hellas’ in-house chemists and internal manufacturing of non-toxic polyurethanes are the foundation of our quality products. Hellas’ products contain no heavy metals or toxins, providing “greener” running tracks and synthetic turf systems. Our TPS 5000 court surfacing products test excellently in solar reflectivity. They are environmentally friendly latex and water-based acrylic coatings, suitable for all outdoor sports court surfaces.
We use eco-friendly, locally sourced, recycled materials and resources, from the concrete and asphalt for parking lots and sidewalks, to our synthetic turf infills and LED lighting systems. With our exclusive REALFILL™ infill system, as well as our epiQ Tracks® running systems, our projects result in more than 25 million tires recycled every year. Hellas offers our Geo Plus infill as an alternative, made from 100% plant-based, organic materials. This combination of carefully selected, specially treated, organic coconut fibers and cork ensure the highest level of sports performance, compared to the experience on a natural grass field, and with 90% less water usage. Our effective drainage systems reduce runoff and control each project site’s water balance, while our synthetic turf systems reduce water consumption for athletic and landscaping projects by up to 100%, saving millions of gallons of water every year. Hellas will use our expertise, products and technology, to help your project earn you points to become LEED certified.
Hellas Construction strives to provide the best sports surfaces, using the greenest products available and we will work with you to make sure our communities reduce their carbon footprint.
Because Hellas is vertically integrated, we have the capability of meeting our client’s product and construction requirements for LEED certification beyond the information provided below:
Hellas reduces pollution from construction activities by controlling soil erosion, waterway sedimentation, and airborne dust by performing a SWPPP (Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan).Site Assessment
Before project design begins, Hellas evaluates sustainable options after performing a survey that provides information regarding topography, existing vegetation, and a geotechnical analysis on the project site’s soil consistency. We then inform related decisions about the site design based on these findings.Rainwater Management
Through our effective drainage system, we can reduce runoff and control the water balance of the site.Light Pollution Reduction
Through the use of LED technology Hellas can provide precision lighting with 50%-70% energy cost savings.Heat Island Reduction
Hellas reduces heat islands and minimizes effects on human and wildlife habitats and micro-climates by testing excellently in solar reflectivity for TPS 5000 court surfacing products. Solar reflectivity is the ability of a material to reflect sunlight back into the atmosphere which reduces heat absorption from the sun.
By using our synthetic turf systems, we can reduce outdoor water consumption for athletic and landscaping projects. Our patented Realfill system, containing recycled rubber, requires no irrigation while our 100% organic infill, GeoPlus, reduces water consumption by up to 90%.Indoor Water Use Reduction
Hellas can reduce indoor water use by implementing low water consumption fixtures and fittings.
Hellas can reuse products and materials including recycled rubber in synthetic turf infill and running tracks, while also recycling asphalt and concrete sidewalks, parking lots, etc.Sourcing of Raw Materials
Locally sourced, reused, or recycled materials (drainstone, concrete, and asphalt, etc.) within a 100 mile radius of the project site can qualify a project to achieve LEED credits.Material Ingredients
Hellas selects the best raw materials as ingredients for our products. These ingredients have an accepted methodology and are verified to minimize the use and generation of harmful substances.
Hellas’ Design Department can incorporate sidewalks, walking trails, etc. to promote non-motorized transportation to the project site.Prevention Through Design
Hellas’ Safety Department promotes cost-effective employee safety and health throughout the building life-cycle by conducting mandatory safety meetings, forums, and evaluations to confirm compliance to all safety regulations.Assessment and Planning for Resilience
Before a project is designed, our team communicates with the client to plan for potential impacts of natural disasters or disturbances of the project site.
