El Cerrito Recycling Center

El Cerrito, CA


Using a hybrid of design build and integrated project delivery, the project team met the challenge to develop a two-acre multi-million dollar recycling facility in less than one year. The Center not only serves as a recycling drop-off location, but also is a living model of sustainable practices, boasting net zero energy and net-zero water use and innovative re-use of building materials – appropriate to a recycling center. By partnering with Zeta Communities to provide a high quality modular structure, the team met material, energy, water and cost goals in way that build-in-place construction could not.
