Adaptive Reuse in Manteca, CA at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Manteca

Allan Yang - Chief Sustainability Scientist

Building History

Manteca Auto Plaza was a GMC and Buick Dealership owned by Mike Peters. Unfortunately, after 11 years of successful operation the Manteca Auto Plaza had to shut its doors. The plaza building was built in 1985 and U-Haul acquired the building in 2014. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens' needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.

Environmental Impact

Serving U-Haul customers since 2014, this facility was built through adaptive reuse of an abandoned building. Adaptive Reuse promotes infill development in an effort to strengthen communities, with the following benefits achieved at this site:

  • 65 tons of metal manufacturing & transportation prevented
  • 1,688 tons of new concrete pours avoided
  • 1,753 tons of construction and demolition debris prevented

Energy-efficiency and waste-reduction programs at this facility provide the following estimated benefits each year for the Manteca community:

  • 942,913 lbs greenhouse gas emissions prevented
  • Steel Use

    Steel Production 65 tons of steel manufacturing and delivery saved to date
