Schrapper’s Fine Cabinetry was recently mentioned in an article in the Palm Beach Daily News showcasing an Art Deco home in Palm Beach. Schrapper’s was proud to have provided the cabinetry for this home. The architect, Jackie Albarran, was recently awarded The Palm Beach Preservation Foundation Schuler Award for excellence in new architecture. The house’s status has also earned the first platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification in Palm Beach.
Schrapper’s provided LEED Qualifying Materials
If you’re not familiar with what constitutes LEED materials, it is interesting to learn the composition of some of the components of the cabinetry.
Northern Contours is the leading manufacturer of Thermofoil surfaces in North America. The door and drawer cores are comprised of one hundred percent recovered and recycled wood waste. Schrapper’s team of highly specialized designers and cabinetry artisans used formaldehyde-free hardwood technology. This means no formaldehyde added at all. The adhesives are soy based and throughout the entire project, LEED and CARB2 compliancy was adhered to.
