Sustainable Construction and Tracking Raw Materials

Economic & environmental benefits of deconstruction, tracking materials.

About this Event

Environmental & economic benefits of deconstruction and reusing materials include preserving resources, preserving energy & water and job creation. Too many organizations continue to operate in silos & one company alone cannot accomplish maximum building material waste diversion.

You will learn what have been developed to share deconstruction best-practices and procedures, allowing other companies to enjoy similar environmental, social & economic benefits.

Tracking & reusing wood, plastic and building materials and repurposing them while lowering the carbon footprint is essential.
Other building concepts like leaving a concrete foundation in place for new construction also saves tonnages of concrete from hitting the landfill.

Taking advantage of tax benefits in the new normal
Tax deductions are available for donating used building materials, furnishings, fixtures, and appliances to charity. Individuals, pass-through entities, and corporations can take these tax deductions. Procuring an accurate and valid appraisal is critical to the tax deduction.

Jessica Marschall
11:50 - 12:05
Urban Mining and Research
Construction and demolition use a huge amount of materials. Those materials represent massive amounts of Scope 3 environmental impact. Because buildings last 30-100+ years, design decisions have huge implications for material recovery or waste generation. By thinking of buildings as "mines" of material and building products, we can start to capture value. How Metabolic's urban mining tool is already being used to transform the built environment. Practical steps to create a circular/zero waste built environment.
