Advanced Community Enhancement (ACE), Building Value, Rumpke and the Uptown Consortium are taking down an old laundromat in Avondale. The hot thing in construction right now is LEED certification for highly efficient and sustainable structures. These organizations though are trying to achieve LEED platinum demolition standards. They're repurposing or recycling 90 percent of the building's materials.
