Keeping Buildings in the Loop with Circular Deconstruction

9:00 am - 10:00 am

Room 502, Cowlitz

How can thoughtful deconstruction policies and programs advance circularity? What are the community benefits, and what factors can drive similar programs across the US? 

A flurry of deconstruction policies and initiatives have cropped up in US cities over the past decade, promoting a more circular economy by reducing waste and the demand for virgin materials, creating jobs and preserving cultural and historic heritage. But to successfully unlock local benefits of deconstruction programs requires a blend of innovative private sector players, supportive policymakers and community engagement.

Join this session to learn about the factors driving the adoption of intentional deconstruction policies, innovations, and partnerships and how deconstruction can promote economic growth and social equity across communities.
