Reclaim Detroit is using deconstruction as a new way to help tackle Detroits blight problem, a solution that is also helping create jobs in the Motor City.
Reclaim Detroit launched out of the WARM Training Center last year focusing on deconstructing blighted buildings. So far the non-profit and its 18 employees have deconstructed three houses and has recently started on its four home.
“The more we do the better we get with it,” says James Willer, a manager at Reclaim Detroit. “Its amazing what we can get from all of these houses.”
