Community Partnerships: Portland State University

Rebright Industries is excited to announce our partnership with Portland State University.  Architecture Professor Margarette Leite’s Advanced Architectural Materials Class (ARCH 462/562) will be developing creative product solutions for materials that would otherwise be headed to the landfill.  Margarette and her students have been recognized for their ability to combine innovative design with socially-beneficial results, and we are fortunate to work with Margarette and her class.

“Our students and faculty at PSU’s School of Architecture see real life problem solving with community partners as a true test of their skills and an unbeatable learning experience,” said Margarette.   “We are thrilled about this opportunity to work with Rebright Industries to find solutions to our construction industry’s wasteful habits by turning landfill-bound construction materials into useful and exciting new building products.”

Rebright is committed to engaging our community and finding scalable solutions for end-of-life materials. Collaborations with like-minded partners such as Margarette and her talented class offer exceptional opportunities to help achieve our goal of enhancing social, environmental, and capital resources by recovering value from the waste stream.
