Sustainability

At Luna we see sustainable building as a necessity and have already incorporated certain parts USGBC and Leeds Rating systems guidelines into our daily practice. We view these guidelines a challenging puzzle, and not as a game of right and wrong.

I love what Greg accomplished in our apartment. The quality of his work on our bookshelves and additional kitchen cabinet unit was excellent. His suggestion to make pockets in the soffit for our window shades was brilliant! We were very pleased with both the workmanship and the punctuality of his work. Thank you for helping make our home very special.

On Materials and Processes

  • We've paid close attention to manage our material ordering so that we can minimize unnecessary waste. This is the first step in sustainable materials handling.

  • Luna uses a Leeds approved waste company for all of its debris. This means that over 75% of our garbage is recycled and less than 25% ends up in a landfill.

  • We also recycle materials at the job site level as much as possible. Metal is easily recyclable through licensed scrap companies. Usable appliances and furnishings are donated to appropriate organizations or listed as free items on local web bulletin boards.
