AAgam recognizes the importance of sustainability. It is built into our process and culture. Agam contributes to environmental sustainability in a number of ways.
The vast majority of our material waste is recycled.
Aluminum and steel are the largest volume of waste and they are all recycled
PVC and acrylic sheet good waste are recycled through a partner program with a supplier
Wood is sent to a partner who uses it for heating
Paper products and cardboard are also recycled
Prefabricated Structures Significantly Reduce Waste
Agam’s prefabricated structures are delivered, ready to install. The only on-site waste is packaging material. In addition, structures can be relocated, reconfigured and reused in different applications or to meet the evolving needs of a flexible workspace.
Traditional construction, on the other hand,
produces much more waste.
The U.S. generated over 600 million tons of construction-related waste in 2018. (EPA, 2023)
Construction & Demolition waste generation in the U.S. increased by 342% from 1990 to 2018. (EPA, 2023)
As much as 30% of all building materials delivered to a typical construction site can end up as waste. (ScienceDirect, 2011)
More than 75% of all construction waste from wood, drywall, asphalt shingles, bricks and clay tiles end up in landfills. (EPA, 2020)
