Providing a quiet and comfortable atmosphere for the rest of the occupants of the structure is part of LEED construction, and to that end GCM created a "music studio" using Silent FX, a gypsum board that will dampen sound and allow for for someone to play loud music without bothering other people. This will result in very healthy living environment and will help with LEED points. Gypsum is a sustainable resource.

GCM partnered with gypsum board manufacturer Certainteed Saint-Gobain, winner of EPA's 2013 Energy Star Partner of the Year, for the drywall because of Certainteed's healthy, sustainable and responsible company practices and products. Certainteed's AirRenew gypsum boards actually absorb VOCs, neutralize them, and that makes the air healthier. Certainteed's M2Tech gypsum boards were used around moist areas and will resist mold and mildew, once again creating a more healthy environment. Bringing a comfortable atmosphere to the structure, Silent FX acoustic drywall boards were used in the basement for the music studio room, a gypsum board that dampens sound to make the environment quieter. All of this will help in creating a healthy, comfortable atmosphere to the structure and helping to achieve maximum LEED points and the highest Energy Star rating. GCM recommends Certainteed Saint-Gobain's line of sustainable, healthy and "green" line of gypsum boards for your home construction project.
