Andrew Ellsworth, LEED AP
Founder and CEO, Doors Unhinged
Andrew is Founder & CEO of Doors Unhinged, the first US company to exclusively sell reclaimed commercial doors systems. Since launching Doors Unhinged in 2018, Mr. Ellsworth has delivered high-quality products to nearly a dozen commercial clients, outfitting numerous renovations and new building projects across Western Pennsylvania with reclaimed materials. His pioneering work proves that there is, in fact, a market for construction material reuse at a larger, commercial scale.
Mr. Ellsworth is committed to circular economy, community investment and zero waste principles, presenting his vision and approach to carbon reduction in the construction industry at national conferences; most recently at the Living Product Expo and Decon & Reuse Conference. As a result of his success with Doors Unhinged, he hopes to inspire a larger movement, spurring more businesses to enter the commercial building material reuse ecosystem.
Prior to starting Doors Unhinged, Mr. Ellsworth worked in sustainable enterprise development, LEED consulting, and healthy high-performing schools. He served for six years on the board of Construction Junction, and volunteers regularly an environmental health advocate and kids’ soccer coach. Andrew has a Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two children.
