Manchurian Walnut grows on the aptly named ‘Helsinki Walnut’ plot (As Oy Helsingin Jalopähkinä). Lehto is developing the plot for its Nero apartment buildings. This walnut tree in the Pukinmäki district is one of Helsinki’s 31 protected natural landmarks. Lehto has planned the location and shape of the apartment building to ensure that there is sufficient space for the protected tree. About one fourth of the plot has been allocated to the tree, and the locations of both the apartment buildings and the construction site have been carefully planned with experts.
Gypsum board is being recycled at factories. Almost every Lehto Components factory returns its gypsum board cutoffs to the supplier. The gypsum boards are supplied by Knauf, which also accepts returns of production cutoffs. About 1–2 cubic metres of gypsum board cutoffs are generated in production per day. The gypsum board cutoffs are collected by the truckload and then delivered to Knauf’s factory in Kankaanpää, where they can be reused.
Window frame cutoffs are returned to the supplier. The window and balcony door line at Lehto’s factory in Oulainen manufactures windows for Lehto buildings from pre-shaped materials, cutting them into the correct dimensions. Cutoffs from the window and door frames manufactured at the factory are sent back to the supplier in Poland. Rehau’s processing plant in Poland melts them down into pellets that can later be recompressed into new products.
