A family tradition that began in 1947, in the garage of cabinetmaker Tom Hammer, has evolved into one of the largest custom cabinet manufacturers in the U.S. To this day, Crystal Cabinet Works is still owned and operated by the Hammer family, with Jeff Hammer, along with his daughters, continuing the tradition of fine custom cabinet making. Every cabinet is still built one at a time, just for you. From shaping each piece of molding, to routing the cabinet doors, and assembling each box, they believe their strength lies in their extended family of true craftsman located in central Minnesota. They take great pride in their knowledgeable, hard-working people, who have learned the cabinetmaking trade over several decades and continue to pass the craft on to future generations. The garage has gotten a lot bigger, but their approach to the work hasn’t changed a bit.
GreenQuest earns all of the available points for the green building rating systems that we’ve reviewed, including LEED and the National Green Building Standard as well as local programs.
The acronym LEED refers to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a set of green building criteria established by the US Green Building Council for various types of construction projects. Under the LEED system, entire structures or projects become third-party certified, not single products. The available points for cabinetry are a small part of the overall points needed to certify the project. The point structure varies by LEED system and type of project.
At JM Kitchen and Bath we use Green building products whenever clients request it for their kitchens in the Denver Metro CO area.
Crystal’s GreenQuest cabinets were designed to earn eligible points for cabinetry under all LEED systems and will contribute toward project certification, depending on the green attributes specified.
Under LEED-2009, Crystal’s GreenQuest cabinetry can earn points for recycled content (particleboard and MDF), regional materials (if within 500-mile radius), rapid-renewability (bamboo), FSC-certified wood (various species), and low-emitting wood coatings (water-based finishes) and low-emitting composite wood products (Green-Core).
Under LEED for Homes, Crystal’s GreenQuest cabinetry can earn points for recycled content (particleboard and MDF), FSC-certification (various species), and no-added urea formaldehyde resins (Green-Core). (Note: LEED-H does not allow points to be earned for cabinet finishes.)
