Doing it Right, the Reno Way

Reno Contracting

Since its founding, Reno Contracting’s mission has remained steadfast. “I started with Matt Reno in 1989. We’ve been friends since 1987, and from the beginning, it was always, ‘We’re going to do the right thing,’” said President and Chief Operating Officer Walt Fegley. This seemingly simple statement forms the basis on which Reno Contracting has built its success as one of the largest, most prominent build-to-suit general contractors in Southern California.

Committed to A Cleaner World

Devens Recycling Center

Recycling materials from demolition and construction would seem to be a logical and worthy endeavor. Wood, glass, concrete and other building supplies should be reused, but it may be surprising to know that this is not something that has been common practice for very long. Devens Recycling Center in Massachusetts, however, is recovering up to eighty percent of recyclable materials from demolition sites to be reused in many other end markets. We spoke with its founder Kurt Macnamara about the tests a specialty company goes through and how recycling 1,500 tons a day can wreak havoc on customized machinery.
