ReSource Arizona takes a holistic approach to the environment and our goal of becoming a sustainable enterprise. Our focus is on waste management; delivery of sustainable and responsible products & services; and extending the life of your flooring investment – reducing raw material consumption. We are continuously evaluating methods and processes to reduce and eliminate material waste and other non-value added processes that negatively impact our environment.
USGBC’s LEED™ System
The U.S. Green Building Council created the innovative, LEED™ building rating and certification system as a design guide to focus on design and construction categories that will reduce a building’s footprint on the environment. ReSource Arizona provides a wide selection of products and services designed to reduce their footprint throughout manufacturing, building construction and use. Many of these features, such as recycled content, under floor air distribution, construction waste management and low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emitting materials (carpets, adhesives and maintenance products) provide the industry’s highest contribution toward LEED™ certification under Versions 2.0 and 2.1 (new buildings), EB (existing buildings) and CI (commercial interiors).
Using advanced estimation technology, ReSource Arizona’s FloorRight™ software allows us to automate the estimation process improving accuracy and turnaround time, while minimizing material waste and non-value added cost before the order is ever placed. Floor plans are transmitted electronically, thus reducing transportation emissions generated while transporting project plans to and from customer facilities.
We promote the use of modular products, specifically carpet tile, for selective replacement. Designing for selective replacement of modular carpet allows us to replace only those sections of carpet that receive the most wear. Additionally, we can redesign your space reusing carpet tile in other locations within a given facility. This reduces your investment and consumption of natural resources to manufacture new carpet. Should your existing flooring be unsalvageable, we partner with manufacturers and the C.A.R.E. (Carpet America Recovery Effort) Organization to coordinate demolition, packaging, and transportation of used flooring materials to be sent for recycling.
Many of the floor care products that ReSource Arizona uses are formulated using environmentally responsible ingredients and show superior performance in soil and stain removal. Our Maintenance Services department keeps products looking good and performing longer. This reduces the need for premature replacement and the consumption of raw materials. We take a comprehensive and preventative approach to carpet care with a goal to extend the life of your investment by 5 to 10 years.
