At the ribbon cutting of its newest store built by Emory Hill & Company in Bear, Delaware, Royal Farms revealed its “Fryer to Fuel” program which converts chicken oil into diesel fuel, raising the bar still higher for the convenience store chain when it comes to environmentally friendly practices.  Royal Farms is the state’s leading retail chain when it comes to having the most stores built to LEED standards and/or certification. Emory Hill & Company was the general contractor on the Bear store, which is seeking LEED certification as well as those in Glasgow, Georgetown and Dover which were also built to LEED standards and/or certification. Emory Hill was also recently awarded a contract to build the next store to be built in Ocean View.

Delaware Governor Jack Markell was on hand December 12 for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Department’s new Juvenile Multi-Purpose Education Facility at the Ferris School for Boys just outside Wilmington. The facility was constructed by Emory Hill & Company for the Delaware Children’s Department, which is seeking LEED Gold certification. The $5 million dollar facility was funded as a result of the Capital Budget process through the Building Delaware’s Future Now Funding.  The 14,000 SF state-of-the-art building which sits on the Agency’s administrative campus near Newport will be the new educational home for youth who are committed to the Department’s Level IV Residential Cottages.  The building was designed in accordance with Governor Markell’s EO 18 to design new state buildings to be LEED certified. The Department is pursuing Gold level LEED certification by mid-2014.
