Stevens Advantage Consistently Achieves GREENGUARD Gold Status 
Casework passes stringent UL criteria


The Stevens Advantage team is pleased to share that our casework continues to achieve GREENGUARD Gold certification from UL Environment.  Stevens is one of just a few casework manufacturers to receive GREENGUARD Gold certification.  Our high-quality laminated products have been engineered to meet stringent green standards. 

GREENGUARD Gold Certification (formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification) offers stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.  Look for our GREENGUARD Gold certified products in our Catalog section. 


 
 
 
 
 
Submittal Drawings- Class Available in July

We want to help you succeed during this busy season.  July 12-14 we will be having a class to educate about dealer submitted drawings.  Email Travis Oaks for details.  Our dealers who are actively engaged in the practice have been very pleased with the results. 

Bob Monolo, Glen Alspaugh Company, explains the benefits he's seen with ownership of the submittal drawings, "It seems like project schedules continue to be more aggressive allowing less time from notice to proceed to job completion.  The dealers involvement in the drawing process gives us the ability to provide submittal drawings in a timely manner, allowing us to meet the very aggressive construction schedules set forth on many of our projects.  Additionally controlling the submittal process allows us to incorporate dealer provided buyouts into the “Stevens” set of shop drawings making a more cohesive, complete set."   

Research into the process and timeline indicate dealers completing submittal drawings can save four weeks or more in overall project time.  Those dealers currently using StevensDRAW, our drawing automation which sits on top of Auto CAD, have found it to be a tremendous tool.  Fewer steps in the interpretation of the end-customer’s desires lead to reduced errors, saving time and costly reworks.  As your customer’s point of contact, you are best equipped to interpret their needs and transfer them into drawings.  There is no better time to take ownership of this leg of the process than in this, our busiest time of year. 

We are your partner in producing successful outcomes for every job!
