Recycling Construction Debris on Building of New Office in West Austin

Recycling Construction Debris on Building of New Office in West Austin

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.

We’re Providing Recycling Hauling in Austin for New Student Housing Construction

We’re Providing Recycling Hauling in Austin for New Student Housing Construction

We’re currently working with JE Dunn Construction on a new 6-story student housing development near the University of Texas at Austin’s west campus. We’ve stocked the construction site with both 20-yard and 40-yard dumpsters, and we’re providing regular recycling hauling.

The new student housing is located at 24th Street and San Gabriel and will be called Regents West at 24th. It is a sister-site to the Regents West at 26th student housing building located just a few blocks away. Both apartment communities offer efficiency studios up to five-bedroom apartments with a variety of unique floor plans. Located within walking distance of the University of Texas at Austin, the apartment community will also offer a regular shuttle service to transport students to and from campus. Other amenities include wireless high-speed internet, a study lounge, a 24-hour fitness center, and on-site maintenance. Regents West is currently leasing units for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year.

In Austin, it is mandatory for all construction sites to recycle debris. As a LEED AP-certified recycling hauler, AYD is ready and well-informed to provide recycling hauling services for Austin residents, businesses and new development. On brand new construction sites, we easily recycle 95-98% of all construction debris materials, which often include concrete, drywall, wood, metal and paper.

Per LEED requirements, we also provide clients with an exact, calculated breakdown showing the total tons of materials hauled and the percentage recycled. In addition, we’re able to provide multiple hauls each day if needed, swapping out dumpsters and transporting loaded dumpsters to the appropriate recycling center or landfill. This keeps construction projects running smoothly and efficiently.

Based in Kansas City, JE Dunn Construction has been in the industry for more than 85 years. The company expanded outside of Kansas City and now counts 20 office locations across the United States. In 2012, JE Dunn ranked as the twelfth largest general building company in the US.
