Deconstructable New Construction: A Smart Alternative


Published on

This presentation was recently approved by the U.S. Green Building Council & GBCI for one CEU credit. For those companies who need space fast, the Boomerang Building can be installed in as little as 21 days. Can't commit to a large capital investment or new construction not in the budget? Boomerang's short-term lease frees up cash flow and provides tax benefits. It is also a smart alternative to the waste of resources constructing permanent buildings for needs of only 2-5 years. Designed for deconstruction, the Boomerang has a high content of recycled materials, is 100% repurposed after each project and can contribute to LEED points.

Deconstructable New Construction: A Smart Alternative

  1. 1. Mahaffey Fabric Structures  Boomerang Buildings 4161 Delp Street, Memphis, TN 38118 
  2. 2. Tents were sustainable long before there was a green movement. Since 1924, Mahaffey has taken numerous steps to adapt to these needs and decrease our ecological footprint
  3. 3. All elements of these temporary structures are carefully deconstructed after each use, cleaned in our waterconserving washing machine and then refurbished or repurposed for another project. The LEED credit Building Reuse may be a target, as it can be shown that the structure has been erected before. It represents 1 LEED point potential in MRc3.
  4. 4. Once the structure has reached the end of its lifespan, it is recycled after selective deconstruction by contacting the local recycling centers and shipping directly to the nearest mill or smelter. The frame is then melted down and reused. This can contribute to the LEED credit Construction Waste Management. It represents a 1-2 LEED point potential in MRc2.
  5. 5. The Boomerang Building was designed with these goals in mind.
  6. 6. Industrial professionals lease a Boomerang Building when: • There’s need for immediate, fully functional space. • New construction is not in the budget, but the demand needs to be satisfied tomorrow. • Frustrated that materials are being lost to theft and weather damage. • Project needs change and building(s) must be relocated quickly. • A conventional “tent” structure is not an option due to high winds or other environmental conditions, such as the need for thermal insulation. • Seeking a competitive advantage by supporting sustainable green initiatives.
  7. 7. Should the need arise for a temporary building and there is a limited installation time frame, Boomerang provides the ideal solution in just 21 days.
  8. 8. Can’t commit to a large capital investment or new construction not in the budget? Boomerang’s short-term lease frees up cash flow.
  9. 9. Benefits: • Low startup costs & quickly operational • Portable, temporary structure = property tax savings • Lease expense is fully tax deductible vs. depreciation of permanent real estate. Considered a business expense vs. capital expenditure – a strategic financial choice for many organizations • 1 LEED point potential in IDc1.1 by showing the cost and CO2 savings.
  10. 10. Money is always tight. If owners were presented with an option to bridge temporary needs with sturdy, temporary buildings in lieu of tents, they may choose this alternative.
  11. 11. Finally, the Boomerang is a smart alternative to the waste of resources used constructing permanent buildings for needs of only 2-5 years. It has a high content of recycled materials, is reused each time it is deployed and is itself recyclable at the end of its useful life. This can also contribute to the LEED credit Construction Waste Management. It may represent a 1-2 LEED point potential in MRc2.
  12. 12. :: Boomerang Building Mission :: To transform design teams’ thought process of new construction by incorporating a lease option for temporary, sustainable buildings that can be rapidly adapted to society’s changing needs, while causing the least amount of negative impact on our environment.
  13. 13. Boomerang Buildings are fast and cost-effective. Want one more reason? They’re green.
  14. 14. Green buildings: • Reduce construction costs • Reduce CO2 emissions • Reduce environmental impacts of new construction • Reduce liability, and by this, lower insurance costs • Achieve more predictable results in the design, construction and operation of built environments • Save money through tax benefits (lease cost vs. depreciation deduction) • Once the need no longer exists, the temporary building’s site can easily be restored to its landscaped origin
  15. 15. The cumulative impact of the design, construction and operation of built environments has profound implications on the environment and the economy.
  16. 16. Consider the lifecycle of these buildings: • Where did the building materials come from? Recycled content • Where will they go after use? Repurposed
  17. 17. LEED-related Components
  18. 18. Steel frame→ Nucor Yamato Steel in Blytheville, AR & Keeler Iron Works in Memphis, TN • Total Post Consumer Recycled Content (Steel): 82.3% • Total Pre-Consumer/Post-Industrial Recycled Content: 16.9% • 70 miles from Mahaffey headquarters: 5929 Arkansas 18 Blytheville, AR 72315

  34. 34. As your needs change, so can your building, thanks to its modular design and inherent flexibility. Boomerang Buildings can be reconfigured, expanded and relocated with ease.
  35. 35. This concept takes green building to the next level. It encourages project teams to create environments that may be completely restored or regenerated once the need for the temporary building no longer exists. Through this effort, we are ultimately able to provide positive environmental, social and economic impacts.
  36. 36. We’re not just creating a better building, but a smarter one.
  37. 37. By using these structures doing the right thing becomes the logical, economical and environmentally correct choice. Make a difference by leasing a temporary, sustainable Boomerang Building. 800.918.5795
