Otak recently received a certificate of appreciation from the Shaw Contract Group for recognition of environmental stewardship! As part of the tenant improvements for our new Portland office, our architects were able to return approximately 3,918 pounds of post-consumer carpet back to the manufacturer to be recycled. This decision helped eliminate almost 4,000 pounds of landfill waste!

Recycling the old carpet is only one of many sustainable elements that Otak architects incorporated into the Portland office design. Other sustainable design features include energy-efficient lighting with daylight sensors and occupancy sensors, low-emitting materials, and materials reuse. We are pursuing LEED Commercial Interiors Silver certification.
