When IRG was built, we worked hard to utilize reclaimed materials in the creation of the gym interior. Much of the 20,000 lbs. of steel supporting the climbing walls was reclaimed, as well as a percentage of the climbing holds. We were also able to re-purpose the materials that were removed in the demolition stage and use them to build the gym’s office and dressing rooms.
