Shreveport, LA –This building is a New Material Recovery and Recycling Facility. Project was separated into two distinct buildings and phases.  Phase I included a new 35,000 SF industrial building that contains a two-story, 4,000 sq. ft. office and a 31,000 sq. warehouse which holds a recycled material recovery and sorting machine.  Phase II consists of the construction of a new multi-story 270,000 sq. ft. steel-structure building which houses a paper making machine and all of the associated machine rooms, slurry stock chests, labs, offices, test rooms, storage rooms, and paper reel stacking distribution facility.  Also included are an on/off-loading rail spur and a 6-truck loading dock/well along with new drives, parking areas, and material collection space.  Phase one is complete while phase II is nearing completion.  This new facility has enabled the city of Shreveport to start its new curb-side recycling program that went online in late August, 2008.
