Vegas Strip Beer Bottle Glass Used in Greenstone Building

 

 

McCombs, founder of Henderson-based Realm of Design, recycles glass bottles into a building product called GreenStone, which he used in building his own 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 1188 Center Point Drive. Virtually everything in the recently completed $1.4 million building next to Realm of Design’s existing showroom has some recycled glass in it. Construction of the building utilized more than 500,000 beer bottles which amounted to over 290,000 pounds of recycled glass for the exterior building façade. This saved over 400,000 CU yds of landfill space which is equivalent to filling 8 football fields piled to the top of the goalpost.

Realm of Design’s founder, Scott McCombs, worked years on developing and perfecting green architectural stone (aka “GreenStone”), which is made from 100% recycled glass aggregate and 99.8% renewable materials. Partnering with a Las Vegas recycling company, Realm of Design obtains and recycles beer bottles that comes from Las Vegas Strip hotels. Since glass takes 4000 years to decompose and is piling up in landfills, Realm of Design is proud to be a company that is helping to provide a resource and energy efficient product that helps close the glass-recycling loop and save landfill space. Realm of Design is proud to be  a company that is helping to provide a resource and energy efficient product that helps close the glass-recycling loop and save landfill space.

Realm of Design is excited to now offer this patented GreenStone in the architectural designs it creates for its customers/clients who want the opportunity to be green. The GreenStone can be used to replace standard concrete in buildings or smaller items such as fireplaces, mantles, gazebos, fountains, balustrades, columns/ beams, etc. Will you visit the Greenstone Building on your next Vegas trip?
