Lifecycle Building Center (LBC) is a community-based warehouse facility that directly assists the general public by identifying and implementing best practice green building-related concepts. The idea is to reduce solid waste disposal, promote resource efficiency, stimulate economic development, and empower every citizen to improve their own built environment.

Mission: The mission of LBC is to make the lifecycle use of the built environment increasingly efficient and sustainable. This mission will be enacted in three ways:

  • Through the operation of a retail building material reuse center as a workable and self-sufficient alternative to material disposal
  • By using proceeds from material sales to fund grassroots community outreach programs that enhance resource efficiency in the built environment
  • By empowering the community with the educational and experiential resources needed to effectively raise market demand for green building goods and services

LBC's Operational Highlights: Since beginning operations in 2011, LBC has diverted over 2.2 million pounds of building materials from landfills and saved the community over $1.4 million through deep discounts on material purchases, avoided disposal costs and the donation of free building materials to over 90 nonprofit organizations.

More detailed information can be found within the LBC 2013 Annual Report, in the LBC Flyer and in the LBC Strategic Plan.

Lifecycle Building Center has been granted 501(c)3 non-profit status by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations received may be treated as tax-deductible contributions. Our Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 45-2645951.
