Global Resource Recyclers
Global Resource Recyclers required a headquarters for its sales force, research and material collection teams which contribute to the production of Foamed Asphalt, a 100% recycled asphalt pavement material. Foamed Asphalt is recognized as a “green” product by BuildingGreen.com, the industry leader in green building product reviews, news and case studies.
The building is currently registered with the USGBC for LEED Silver Certification due to its support of this product and its use of sustainable design features, including high efficiency plumbing fixtures, use of storm water for irrigation, use of natural light, access to views from each room, use of materials with recycled content like OSB board, glulams and mill finish aluminum siding and roof, energy efficient HVAC units, high efficiency building envelope products like Structural Insulated Panels and operable insulated glass windows with heat resistive solar tinting. And of course, Foamed Asphalt was used on the site which is dedicated to its production, lending to the regional economy and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from the transportation and extraction of virgin material.
