Dirk Wassin of Second Use and Pat Finn-Covin of REStore will address the following points

  • Hand deconstruction almost always cost more then 'standard' demolition because of labor costs
  • Some level of deconstruction can usually be incorporated into a project at little to no extra cost
  • Some initiatives by local government may help push deconstruction forward
  • Some barriers to deconstruction remain, including hazmat management, fizzling construction markets and lack of integration into standard processes
  • Commitment by green designers and builders will continue to help push the envelope on deconstruction and improve efficiencies
