Mark Richey Woodworking follows environmentally sensitive manufacturing methods and is committed to sustainable practices. Using wood for built interiors is the wisest choice for the environment. It is a clean, renewable resource with the least impact on total energy use, greenhouse gasses, air and water pollution, solid waste and ecological resource use. Seventy percent less energy is required in the use of wood compared with any other building materials.
Our environmental commitment extends beyond projects and consultations. We are continually reducing our carbon footprint and our energy costs: saving money for us and our customers...
Our 600 KW wind turbine is up and running!
Construction was completed in January 2009. It is now fully commissioned and will generate almost all of the electricity needed to power our operations.
We have installed the industry's first clean-burning Biomass furnace in Massachusetts. It heats 80,000 square feet using wood chip byproducts from the company's millwork and nearly eliminates the consumption of fossil fuel for heating. Learn More
In 2008 Mark Richey Woodworking purchased hybrid vehicles in an effort to lower costs and further reduce our carbon footprint. Project Managers use these vehicles for travel to job sites.
At Mark Richey Woodworking we have an extensive recycling program. Besides using all our wood waste for heating our facility we recycle all batteries, plastic, metal, and paper waste.
