GUNLOCKE CONTRIBUTION

The recycled content value of our typical office configurations and conference tables range from 41% to 46% of the cost of the product. The recycled content value for our seating products varies depending on the specific model of chair and the client’s final specifications. We can provide final documentation for major products containing recycled content for the client’s final order, as per the LEED-CI credit template.

CREDIT INTENT

To increase the demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

Use materials, including furniture and furnishings, with recycled content, such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus ½ pre-consumer (post industrial) content constitutes at least 10% or 20% based on the total value of the materials in the project. The recycled content value of a material or furnishing is determined by weight. The recycled fraction of the assembly is multiplied by the cost of the assembly to determine the recycled content value.

POINT THRESHOLDS

minimum percentage materials recycled for each point is as follows:
10% (1 point)
20% (2 points)
