Brendle Group uses recycled wood in headquarters building

FORT COLLINS, COLO. - Earlier this year we collaborated with the Brendle Group, a Fort Collins-based environmental engineering consulting firm, on using recyled urban wood in their new headquarters building.

The project involved miling an American Elm tree that had to be removed as they remodeled and expanded the building. Rather than sending the tree to the landfill or turning it into firewood, we milled it into lumber that is employed in the design highlights throughout the building (like the wood beams pictured above).

The project was a success and according to the Brendle Group, Fort Collins City Forestry hopes to use this experience as a pilot for reusing urban wood and minimizing landfill waste. We hope to have more opportunities to partner with this visionary group in the future.

Read more about the project under “Reclaiming Urban Wood” on the bottom right of the Brendle Group’s website.

If this interests you, join us on June 8 at the Brendle Group where we’ll be speaking on the use of urban lumber to the Northern Colorado Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Coalition.
