Unico Properties partnered with Green Standards to sustainably decommission part of the Longacres campus in Renton, Washington. The previous tenants of the 962,800 square foot office space left a substantial portion of their workplace furniture, appliances, equipment, and supplies. Unico’s Real Estate Services and Sustainability team saw this as an opportunity to ensure beneficial reuse through donations, resale, and recycling.
As a result, Unico and Green Standards diverted 969 tons of corporate waste from landfills, which represents a significant portion of the total waste on site. Reusable office equipment and furniture, totaling $47,083, was donated to 24 non-profit beneficiaries within 30 miles of the Longacres campus.
