“There’s a growing awareness of the (deconstruction) process,” Schilling said. “Younger developers are looking for more progressive solutions or looking for competitive advantages.”
The Deconstruction and ReUse Network has averaged 35 to 60 deconstruction projects per year since they started in 2007, Schilling said. The vast majority are residential projects, though commercial businesses have begun reaching out over the past three years.
“That’s a trend we definitely hope continues. That’s where there’s a great deal of waste,” Schilling said.
