Adaptive Reuse in Newport, RI at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Newport II

Histoire du bâtiment

The 129 JT Connell Memorial Road building has been home to multiple small businesses in the past, most notably Rhode Island Towing Company and Cozy Cab. Prior to U-Haul occupying the building, Cozy Cab was the last occupant. Cozy Cab was a car cab and airport shuttle company that once serviced the Newport area, but unfortunately closed their doors to the public permanently in 2014. The structure was built in 1984 and U-Haul was able to acquire the property in September of 2014, shortly after Cozy Cab vacated. 

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. 

Impact environnemental

Serving U-Haul customers since 2014, this facility was built through adaptive reuse of an abandoned building. La réutilisation adaptative favorise l'aménagement intercalaire dans le but de renforcer les communautés. Parmi les bienfaits obtenus, la réutilisation a permis d'éviter : 

  • la fabrication et le transport de 17 tonnes de métal 
  • 987 tons of new concrete pours avoided 
  • 1 016 tonnes de débris de construction et de démolition 

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

  • 467,270 lbs greenhouse gas emissions prevented 
  • Utilisation de l'acier
