RE-USE Consulting has clients all over the USA.
We travel to their locations and provide training and on-site assistance or help building owners find alternatives to demolition, often over the phone or internet. Our Three-Day Decon national training program has been very successful. We are on track to help our clients deconstruct between 60-75 structures this year, diverting 1.5-2 million pounds from the landfill this year alone.
Home owners/ Building owners-
Call us about your project so we can:
assess your project and suggest strategies to promote reuse
help you sell your materials or donate them to a non-profit
work with your contractor to maximize reuse and recycling
help you reuse your own materials or find other reusable building materials to buy
convince you that deconstruction doesn't take too long + can cost LESS than demolition

RE-USE has also heard of an upcoming green building class/fundraiser on Bainbridge Island.
They will be hosting a three hour presentation on :
The Fundamentals of Designing and Building Sustainable Residential Environments.
The price of the presentation is nominal in an effort to make it affordable for all and the proceeds of the registrations go to support the environmental education curriculum at Voyager Montessori Elementary School (the recipient of the 2007 Excellence in Education award from Kitsap Solid Waste).
