Reitmeier Mechanical has long been an advocate for recycling
utilizing salvaged and energy efficient products whenever
possible. After acquiring their new Corporate Offices located in
Tualatin, Oregon it was only natural that the complete TI
remodel be focused on building “Green” with the emphasis on
achieving LEED “Silver” certification.
Reitmeier Mechanical methodically sought to find participating
partners willing to recycle all the building materials found during
the demolition phase (i.e. wood, metal,gypsum board, copper
wiring, and plumbing fixtures).
The “Green” building techniques employed in the design phase
of this project focused on energy efficiency, while the
construction techniques primarily consisted of construction
waste diversion and material reuse. Both the lighting and the
HVAC systems were designed with a high degree of
controllability in order to optimize energy usage.
