Sustainable Construction

Living wall – Living walls or plant walls are vertical arrangements of plants that naturally remove toxins and unhealthy contaminants from the air that we breathe. Our two story plant wall will not only improve the air quality at CPH, but will also bring a slice of nature into our indoor urban environment.


Rubber floors made from recycled tire – aside from obvious benefits of using recycled material, it provides a more comfortable, and joint-friendly, working environment for employees.


Low/No VOC paints – indoor air quality is one of the top 5 leading health risks according to the EPA; exposure to VOC’s in paint can trigger asthma attacks, eye irritation and respiratory problems, nausea and dizziness among other symptoms. Prolonged exposure has been linked to kidney and liver disease and even cancer.


Recycled/Reused/Reclaimed construction materials – reclaimed steel beams, reclaimed and recycled wood and wood beams, recycled sheetrock/drywall, recycled concrete
