Green Recycling NetworkToward a Greener Tomorrow... Today!
OutlineA brief introductionMarkets primerGreening office renovationsDeconstruction case studyBest practicesFuture
DeconstructionThe Deconstruction process is cost effective relative to traditional demolition because we avoid costly land disposal by leveraging off the expertise of our affiliated, integrated companies. Thus, no matter the job or the mix of materials, clients get great green results even when a project involves a diverse mix such as salvage, drywall (including painted), unusable furniture, carpet, ceiling tile, and even mixed debris.
DeconstructionDeconstructions approach allows maximum diversion of materials from landfills disposal as the goal no matter the client or certification being sought. This standardized approach, coupled with market development capabilities focused on finding outlets for problem materials and with highly trained crews capable of consistently beating expected timelines, allows outstanding results every time (typical diversion rates routinely exceed 90%).
So where does it all go?
Market: cardboard / paper
Market: carpet / pad
Market: ceiling tile
Market: salvage (residential)
Market: salvage (commercial)
Deconstruction: greening office renovationsSelective demolition; construction in reverseMore labor intensive than traditional demolitionHas highest diversion capabilityCostlier than demolition? NO!More time consuming? NO!How? PLANNING!
Following the hierarchy
Project resultsCompleted 1 week AHEAD of scheduleApproach saved owner > 50% of budgetConsignment contract returns $$Clean space drastically reduces cost of remediation and final demolitionAvoided cost of temporary shoringLandfill diversion rate exceeded 75%
Recent office fit-out resultsSlightly more expensive than typical due to building constraints and drywall logistics, however.Total diversion = 90.1%6.3 tons salvage (doors, lights, ceiling tile); 28.6 tons recycled (drywall, carpet, metal); 3.84 tons went to landfill.

Plan for end of lifeDo markets exist?Are outlets local?Forecast infrastructure changesExamine installation practices
Think outside of the boxReusing just 10 doors at a 5,000 SF office fit-out completely pays for the deconstruction expense!
New 10 doors: $10,000Salvage 10 doors: $2,000Savings: $8,000 Vs.Avg. Demo: $7,500
Future: green-to-green facilities
