(PHOENIX) – Hines, the international real estate firm, has recycled 100 percent of the materials from Elevation Chandler after demolishing the unfinished structure in November.
More than 9,300 tons of concrete and 130 tons of steel (rebar and wire cable) were recycled. BCS Enterprises of Gilbert oversaw the recycling and razing of Elevation Chandler.
“Demolishing and recycling Elevation Chandler was an incredibly large undertaking and we are thrilled BCS Enterprises helped us ensure that 100 percent of the materials are reused or recycled,” said Chris Anderson, managing director and local city leader for Hines. “Sustainability is a cornerstone of Hines.”
Hines is building Chandler Viridian at the location, the northwest corner of the Loop 101/Loop 202 interchange.
