This design-build project transformed a beloved neighborhood resource into a destination built around sustainability. The new Recycling and Environmental Resource Center serves an average of 400 visitors a day with a circular site plan that safely separates operations and visitors’ paths of travel. LEED Platinum certified, the center is a demonstration project for net-zero waste, restoration and regeneration, and community values.


“Our goal was to create a recycling and environmental resource center that brings people and community together, inspires better awareness about environmental issues, and satisfies operational needs in creative and efficient ways. We believe the El Cerrito Recycling Center is a story about regeneration and restoration.” – Chris Noll, FAIA, Principal in Charge
