Recently, CertainTeed built a new state-of-the-art, open-floor plan headquarters to showcase the incredibly innovative products the company creates. Products such as drywall that cleans formaldehyde from the air,or roofing shingles that help keep homes cooler in the summer. This space, coined the “living laboratory,” enables Research Teams to measure the impact of the organization’s creations in real environments and ultimately build better products for construction industry consumers.
CertainTeed operates on the philosophy that “we do well by doing good.” It’s an important part of the company culture for each office to be involved in its surrounding community. Two of the top causes include building mortgage-free homes for injured veterans through Homes For Our Troops and working with low-income youth in YouthBuild to channel their energy and intelligence into rebuilding neighborhoods.
