We believe that if our products are 100% natural and sustainable, then our workshop should live up to that standard too. So, two years ago we made the conscious decision to create a beautiful workplace for our Rocky team that was true to who we are.
Here are the few ways we made it a green workspace:
We made the decision to purchase and renovate a used building instead of building a new one.
Our marble counter tops are from the exterior of an office tower in Toronto which we refashioned for many spaces throughout the workshop.
We made our boardroom table with fir that we salvaged from our old Vancouver store.
Only low-VOC paint was used, we added solar electricity, and re-used insulation.
We reused existing furnaces, lighting, doors, bathroom fixtures and kitchen cabinets as much as we can.
We used reclaimed wood for all millwork and studs as well as recycled fiber carpeting.
Any new lighting is from reclaimed sources.
We up-cycled old pallets to make a decorative ceiling treatment.
Existing and old cabinetry for our lab and offices was up-cycled and re-purposed for the new office
Our desk stations are custom built from birch plywood instead of metals, laminates, and plastics.
We found used appliances for our office kitchen.
We used reclaimed barn fir for kitchen tables.
