We’re currently working with general contractor Zapalac/Reed Construction Co. on the construction of a new 250,000 square foot office building in West Austin. We have two 40-yard dumpsters on site to collect debris and we’re providing regular, weekly hauls to recycle the debris.
Part of the San Clemente office and retail park, the new building is located on Westlake Drive on the west side of Capital of Texas Highway. It will be five stories tall and will provide office spaces for local businesses. Spiceworks, a software development company headquartered here in Austin, has already signed on as tenant to lease 95,000 square feet.
The project broke ground in late January of this year and the building is expected to be completed in May 2015. The building also includes a parking lot with 1300 available spaces, and is backed by HPI Real Estate Services & Investments. The building itself was designed by GSC Architects of Austin.
As part of the ongoing initiative to reduce waste in Austin, new construction sites are required to recycle the debris that is generated. We support and take the Zero Waste initiative seriously, which is why we have and maintain a LEED certification. We can provide recycling services to any client, but can also fulfill the requirements of LEED jobs including providing a detailed analysis and breakdown of all materials collected, hauled and recycled.
Recycling is an important part of the construction process. Much of the debris generated on a construction site is similar to common household waste and can easily be recycled and repurposed. These items include glass, plastic, paper and cardboard, metals, and wood. Other construction debris like brick or concrete can be recycled to be reused in paving roadways, preventing erosion or in landscaping. Even dirt can be transported away from an excavation site and re-purposed elsewhere.
If you’re breaking ground on a LEED project in Austin, please contact us to discuss your hauling and recycling needs. We are competitively priced and offer same day delivery service.
