Tally up your LEED credits
A free tool from The Mohawk Group enables calculation of a building’s potential LEED score in minutes.
Unveiled at Greenbuild, The Mohawk Group’s LEED PLUS Calculator is a Web-based tool that allows users to search building products and calculate LEED points and other industry environmental ratings in minutes.
To use, customers can log onto the Mohawk Web site, select a product, then choose which system to rate it against: LEED, CHPS (Collaborative For High Performance Schools), GGHC (Green Guide For Healthcare), or LABS21 (Laboratories For The 21st Century). Users also can check compliance for prevalent third-party certifications. Results are delivered via a PDF report; users can save their reports and use them as supplemental product documentation to be included along with LEED or equivalent certification submissions.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
