Additional documentation to support the submission:

In the last three years WVU had two major renovation/demolition projects. Prior to complete demolition, Stanbury Hall recycled scrap metal, the gymnasium steel roof trusses were repurposed, the historic basketball court floor boards were removed and will be repurposed into fundraising products, and an assortment of bricks will be used as momentos. The major renovation at Hodges Hall included the collection of block and brick that was crushed and reused as fill material.
