Energy and Water Usage Benefits

Recycled and Reused Materials
Adaptive Reuse: The trailer was scheduled to be stripped down to the frame, but the McCownGordon team was able to reuse the existing walls and roof joist. The project team recycled everything removed during demolition, composting the interior wood and donating wiring, panels and the existing toilet to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
ReStore Building Materials:
Framing materials and doors are from ReStore, which sells unneeded and reusable building materials to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Materials are kept in use and saved from
Recycled Content Products: The exterior paneling and roofing is Energy Star Rated and features LEED® compliant recycled metal, and the vinyl-composite flooring has a significant recycled content. The office furniture features a green core of 100 percent recycled tree fiber with no added formaldehyde, and the chairs contain up to 50 percent recycled content.
Reused Building Materials: The interior paneling is reclaimed wood recovered from old lumber, milled down and cleaned up to create 3/8 inch lap siding. The FSC certified casework, remnants from another job, was reused instead of discarded. Even the hardware for the doors is from leftover stock destined for a landfill.
