Recycling Reclaimed Timbers

This is one truckload of reclaimed lumber from the Ajax Materials Asphalt Terminal in Detroit. On May 27, Adamo Group began selective removal of 75,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space to make room for additional liquid asphalt storage tanks. 40,000 sq. ft. of the facility was constructed in the 1940s with large Douglas fir timber columns and rafters. Approximately 90% of the salvaged timbers (40,000 lbs.) are suitable for recycling. The reclaimed timbers will be made into dimensional lumber, flooring, and custom architectural pieces. The project was successfully completed on June 17.
