MAPEI Corp. Names Senbetta Head of LEED Accredited Professionals Group (6/18/09)

Dr. Ephraim Senbetta, LEED AP, will spearhead the group of LEED Accredited Professionals MAPEI Corp. is assembling to assist architects, contractors and specifiers with questions concerning the role of MAPEI’s products in helping contribute valuable points to projects seeking LEED certification.

Senbetta manages MAPEI’s Quality Management System for the Americas. He received his doctorate in Civil Engineering and has been a member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the American Society for Quality (ASQ). He is currently MAPEI’s representative to the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

“The LEED process is very comprehensive, and I find it very rewarding to talk with our customers and other construction community members about questions they have,” Senbetta said. “The most important step manufacturers can take is to develop products with the environment in mind and to more clearly define the roles that their products play in helping construct more environmentally responsible buildings.”

As an AIA/CES provider, MAPEI has developed an AIA-approved presentation on the role of flooring installations in contributing to the LEED process. Senbetta has presented on this topic at industry conventions.
