botton & gardiner's Urban Range of
street furniture has been used throughout Australia for 15 years.
The company now offers fully refurbished products coined Refurban
Furniture. botton & gardiner developed this product using a
product take-back scheme.
Their Urban Range street furniture that is
at the end of its owner's usage cycle is traded in for reuse. It is
then dismantled to recondition the components and reassembled to
'as new' condition barely distinguishable from equivalent newly
manufactured products. The process provides for safe removal of the
furniture, reduces landfill and redeploys the resources in the form
they were originally intended without any reconstitution of
materials. Refurban Furniture is fully guaranteed and
suitable for commercial and public authority urban space projects,
parks, streetscapes, infrastructure, office developments, shopping
centres and other public spaces.
An independent Life Cycle Inventory Analysis
confirmed the benefits of reusing materials compared to virgin
materials. CO2 emissions were found to be almost five
times the amount for virgin materials compared to the reuse of
materials after 50 years.
