Box Self Storage in Cincinnati, which opened in October, is doing its part to help the environment and local community by using materials and processes that consume less energy and produce less waste, according to a press release. The company was careful to recycle as much as possible during construction, but it also engages in ongoing eco-friendly practices.
During development, Box demolished an existing building and built a new one at 4725 Madison Road. By following guidelines by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design in conjunction with consulting firm Heapy Engineering, the company recycled more than 95 percent of resulting materials. For example, the asphalt and concrete removed from the site will be processed so it’s suitable for paving new roads and parking lots.
Low-flush toilets and low-flow sinks were installed at the facility, saving approximately 900 gallons of water per year, the release stated. The developers also chose paints, coatings and adhesives that reduce the concentration of compounds emitted into the air, exceeding the usual standards for building construction. Finally, the staff uses cleaning and maintenance products and procedures designed to minimize the facility’s carbon footprint.
Box invites its prospects and tenants to complete its self-guided eco-tour and learn more about the facility’s green initiatives.
