Former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Redevelopment
Owner: Orange County Great Park Corp.
RMCI through a sustainability partnership with Orange County Great Park Corporation and the development firm Lennar Corporation, will remove and recycle runway, taxiway, concourse maintenance and loading facilities at El Toro totaling 3.5 million tons of Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) and asphalt. Materials will be processed and re-used on the site as part of the re-development effort.
Sustainability through re-use is a key goal of the El Toro project.
All materials will be re-used onsite by the developer and the Orange County Great Park Corporation for private and public development projects on-site including more than 3,400 homes and various commercial sites. This type of re-use reduces and, to some degree, eliminates truck traffic to and from the site and eliminates a huge burden on area landfills.
The El Toro project represents an opportunity for the partner participants to employ state of the art recycle methods to achieve the highest levels of sustainability through re-use. This project will serve as the premier model of re-use for large re-development projects throughout the country.
