Great example of reclaimed products:  This project by Green Partners of Lopez Island, WA, is a great example of reuse.  We deconstructed the cedar cabin that was located here and the material was remilled by the owner to be used in the new space.  It was estimated that the savings over buying this material all over again new was enough to pay for the deconstruction costs for the whole building.



RE-USE Consulting was asked to analyze, design, and help manage the largest deconstruction training program in the US.  We made sure we didn't forget to include value-added operations into the work/training.  Below are some images from the project from the Rebuilding Exchange workshop

Reclaimed Products
DECONSTRUCTING STRUCTURES CAN CREATE 20 TIMES MORE JOBS THAN THE DEMOLISHING THEM!  Some of these jobs come from producing reclaimed products like milling trim from beams or building furniture from salvaged lumber.  These 'VALUE-ADDED' jobs are growing with the deconstruction industry and can replace manufacturing jobs lost overseas.  This page is meant to encourage and boost value-added operations around the USA.
