SUSTAINABILITY

A VISION OF GREEN

 

We are the first and only LEED® Certified™ Salon in the State of New Jersey. We would be happy to educate others about the process.

 

Creating an eco-friendly green salon for men has been a vision of Paul and Marie Gaglioti for the past several years. They are the current owners of Dieci Lifestyle Spa, a 13,000 square foot day spa in Livingston, New Jersey. They had their vision become a reality with the creation of their new sustainable location Dieci Uomo, a Salon for Men, which is located approximately 5 miles away from their original day spa.

 

Being conscious of green, earth friendly practices, goes hand-in-hand with their vision and philosophies. The Gaglioti’s have constructed a men’s salon following the standards set by The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED®) rating program, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

 

The LEED® program issues points to a registered building project based on a variety of construction practices that are both people and planet friendly. Points are earned in five categories, Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.

*Ask a Salon Coordinator for our Environmental Commitment Brochure for more in-depth information on all of our initiatives. It contains a site map that has “green symbols” which are used as markers to identify each eco-friendly feature throughout the building.

  • The building is tightly insulated with a soy based spray foam insulation. 

  • All construction debris was separated and recycled 

  • Installed high performance energy efficient LED lighting system,

  • Highly efficient HVAC equipment was installed along with high performance windows and a light-colored rooftop which reduces energy needed to control indoor spaces by minimizing heat transfer.

  • Energy saving hot water tanks and low flow toilets and sinks were installed to conserve water.

  • Low or no VOC interior finishes were used throughout the facility.

  • All the sheetrock throughout has the highest recycled content possible and recycled glass and steel countertops were used where applicable.
