We are proud to be a LEED certified company, qualified to supply waste management for LEED certified construction projects required to adhere to strict guidelines for green building as dictated by the city of Austin and the US Green Building Council. Our most recent LEED project is the construction of a new Home2 Suites hotel, by Hilton Worldwide.
Home2 Suites is the newest brand put forth by Hilton in nearly 20 years. Intended to be an affordable hotel with sustainability as their key focus, the Home2 Suites line of hotels has only be around for about six years, but has been growing steadily. As a LEED certified establishment, the hotels will have a variety of environmentally friendly practices, internal operations, appliances and amenities. This Home2 Suites hotel is being constructed under general contractor G2 Construction. AYD will be providing our hauling and recycling services for the newest Home2 Suites in Austin, located along Highway 183. The project will cost $5 million, and when complete will have 87 rooms.
Throughout the duration of the project, AYD will supply 30-yard roll-off dumpsters to collect waste material. Of this, we will be able to recycle approximately 98 percent of all construction debris. This includes materials such as drywall, sheetrock, cardboard, wood, aluminum and plastics. Austin is known for their green initiatives, and we’re seeing more green building practices gaining popularity throughout the area. Austin’s dedication to sustainability serves as an inspiration to other cities. AYD hopes to continue contributing to this environmentally responsible trend, participating in the Texas Environmental Quality Initiatives Program and local community beautification projects.
