In the Pacific Northwest, construction waste accounts for about a quarter of waste stream volume. Approximately 85 percent of a building’s major components that typically end up in landfills during demolition can be diverted for reuse; and the overall cost of deconstruction is often comparable to, if not lower than standard demolition costs, after tax benefits are factored in. This two-day training will help you build the business case for deconstruction and reuse and will provide an overview of important elements to consider, including: hazard identification, safety, planning & logistics, and deconstruction and reuse best practices.
Training materials include a tool kit with documentation to help plan and manage the deconstruction process. Participants in Portland will receive a tour of The ReBuilding Center and participants in Salem will tour Habitat ReStore. All students will have the opportunity to observe the deconstruction process during a field visit.
