Facilities Reduction Program declares deconstruction pilot project a success > U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center 

Throwback from 2015.

Bhate employees work to deconstruct a chapel - one of three buildings selected for the deconstruction pilot program - on Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Materials from the chapel were salvaged for reuse or recycle.

From the chapel, more than 250 tons of material was reused or recycled with almost 85 percent diversion, and nearly 700 tons of material was reused or recycled from the laundry with a 73 percent diversion rate. Overall, the three buildings totaled 1,717 tons of material of which 1,246 tons was reused or recycled, making the project a successful venture.
