Realm of Design “GreenStone”
Realm of Design’s founder, Scott McCombs, worked years on developing and perfecting green architectural stone (aka “GreenStone”), which is made from 100% recycled glass aggregate and 99.8% renewable materials from Fly Ash. Partnering with a Las Vegas recycling company, Realm of Design obtains and recycles beer bottles that comes from Las Vegas Strip hotels. Since glass takes 4000 years to decompose and is piling up in landfills, Realm of Design is proud to be a company that is helping to provide a resource and energy efficient product that helps close the glass-recycling loop and save landfill space.

Fun Facts: Realm of Design were their own first client to build with their GreenStone. The company recently completed construction on its new 30,000 sq ft manufacturing facility. The Building, properly named the Morrow Royal Pavilion, is adjacent to Realm of Design’s existing showroom located in Henderson Nevada. Construction of the building utilized more than 500,000 beer bottles which amounted to over 290,000 pounds of recycled glass for the exterior building façade. All the recycled materials utilized saved over 400,000 CU yds of landfill space. The design of the Morrow Royal Pavilion was inspired by the Swarkestone Hall Pavilion in England-the location of one of The Rolling Stones most famous photo shoots. The company even launched a Facebook campaign to encourage the legendary rockers to visit the building.
