Category Sustainable sites

This interactive webcast focuses on the differences between conventional demolition and deconstruction. We will also focus on the environmental and economic rewards from taking a building apart - either wholly or partially - with the intent of salvaging (recycling or reusing) building materials. This approach varies greatly from conventional demolition which involves material removal and disposal. This course will focus on the types of building materials and their potential for reuse. Some materials have a long tradition of reuse (e.g., bricks, metal), whereas other materials are now finding a new vocation (e.g., plumbing fixtures, doors). We will also explore case study examples of both evolving deconstruction techniques and the types of materials salvaged.


At the conclusion of this course you will be able to:
Recognize the differences between conventional demolition and deconstruction
List the environmental and economic rewards from deconstruction
Recite the types of materials salvaged during deconstruction
List types of deconstruction techniques
Recognize case study examples of building deconstruction
