In spring, 2005 our facility was recognized by the Mecklenburg County Recycling Program for its outstanding commitment to keeping green throughout the construction process. RodgersHardin, the general contractor for ImaginOn, recycled 100% of the waste generated during the demolition phase and 82% of the construction waste. Concrete, wood, drywall, metal, and paper were all sorted onsite and recycled locally. Construction and demolition debris accounts for an estimated 1/3 of the overall waste stream in Mecklenburg County . [snip]
In 2006, ImaginOn was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification at the silver level. We scored LEED points by documenting our construction process, making the building energy-efficient, using recycled or environmentally sustainable materials, and educating the public about our efforts.
