THANK YOU to GreenShortz for this fantastic new video, highlighting the many benefits of material reuse!
We sincerely appreciate those who came to celebrate the Lifecycle Building Center's 2nd year of operations during our 2013 Annual Dinner.
2013 was a very busy year for the LBC and we intend to be even busier in 2014!
THANK YOU TO OUR PLATINUM EVENT SPONSORS
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our Customer + Community Appreciation Event! on August 17th.
Over the past 22 months, the Lifecycle Building Center has been fortunate to gather a stellar group of customers and contributors. In honor of your support, we are hosted our first Customer + Community Appreciation Event at our warehouse! We had a great time meeting new folks and seeing some familiar faces. Great food from Six Feet Under, Home Grown-GA, and Burnt Fork BBQ was enjoyed by all.
Photos Available Here.
Thanks to all who joined the Lifecycle Building Center for the culmination of our Spring Fundraising Campaign with a huge party at Trees Atlanta on Thursday, June 13th, from 6-9pm!
Trees Atlanta's beautiful LEED Platinum building and outdoor terraces were enjoyed by all. We had live music, food offerings from Atlanta's finest farms and chefs, a range of creative artwork made with salvaged materials, and many other exciting auction items available.

Donated Forklift from Balfour Beatty
On November 30, the LBC received an incredible gift; a donated forklift from Balfour Beatty Construction! This piece of equipment now plays an essential role in the success of the LBC operation by significantly increasing our staff's efficiency, and by allowing us to take on material pickups that would have previously been impossible. Thank you Balfour Beatty for your belief in the LBC's mission!
Donated Box Truck from Southern Lighting Source
We're thrilled to announce that this beauty of a truck has finally found a home at the LBC thanks to Southern Lighting Source! This donation has already made a huge difference in our ability to collect material and our pick-up services, including a recent project collaboration with LBC Community Partner JE Dunn Construction and at the Morningside Salvage Project (pics). Soon you'll see Adam's artistic handiwork put to use when he brands our new family member with the LBC logo!
LBC Expands into 70,000SF Facility
At the Happy Hour event on October 17th, The LBC Board announced their decision to expand from the 12,000 square foot building into the full 70,000 square foot facility at 1116 Murphy Avenue SW, 30310. This move has profoundly impacted our operation by enabling us to accept a much wider range of material donations. View our SHOP page or visit us in person.
Thank you to everyone who made the Lifecycle Building Center's First Annual Dinner event a huge success! A special thanks to our speakers, Leesa Carter from Captain Planet Foundation and Denise Quarles from the City of Atlanta Office of Sustainability. Thank you also to all of our participating restaurants, farms, volunteers and event sponsors for your amazing support! More photos from the event can be found here.
