Deconstruction and Reuse: Sustainable Construction in Reverse Webcast (RV-10346AW)

Start Date
04/01/2018
End Date
03/31/2020
Description
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.
