Implementing Deconstruction in Florida

Materials & Reuse Issues, Disassembly, Techniques & Policy


Deconstruction and building materials reuse is a vital alternative to demolition and landfilling of demolition waste. This research project will determine the economic, technical and policy issues effecting the deconstruction and salvage industry, determine the constraints, opportunities and procedures related to advancing the concept of building deconstruction with the intent of salvaging building materials for reuse. Implementing recovery and reuse will lessen the solid waste management burden and reduce environmental degradation in the State of Florida.
