Ben Franklin TechVentures LEED: Recycled Building Materials

Recycled Building Materials

Ben Franklin TechVentures2 was designed and constructed using the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System. This standard promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation. To address LEED’s recycled building materials measure, TechVentures2 was constructed with many materials composed of recycled content, including the structural steel, drywall, carpet, and ceiling tiles. Using building materials with recycled content reuses waste products that would otherwise be sent to landfills.
