Wood Available


I had trouble finding the contact information of someone who could contact the members, so I am hoping you will be able to direct this to the appropriate parties;

As construction continues in the Energy Innovation Center, formerly the Connelly Trade School, there is a surplus of wood flooring being removed. As such we are reaching out to see whether you may want to pick some up.

This wood is 3 1/2x 5/4 maple flooring originally installed in 1930 with approximately one nail every 18 inches and several layers of polyurethane finish with various degrees of surface dirt. The flooring was one of the last batches to be produced by a facility in Wisconsin as they suffered a tragic fire shortly after finishing. In our own space we chose to refinish the floors and they have turned out very well, though it could be used for a number of different projects.

Please contact me if you are interested or have an additional contact you believe who would. We have made arrangements with the construction crew to hold onto the wood until January 21st but after that cannot guarantee that it won’t end up in a landfill. While we are not charging for the wood, donations to Pittsburgh Green Innovators are welcomed and we would ask that pictures of final projects be sent our way.

I’ve attached pictures to this email, again please let me know if there are any questions and hopefully we can work together to get this wood to its best use.
