Join us to explore firsthand how salvage, deconstruction, and reuse can be collaboratively activated by design/build teams, municipalities, craftspeople, and reuse organizations to help reduce waste and carbon impact and create local green collar jobs for an increasingly circular built environment.
Background: We generate 548 million tons of construction and demolition (C+D) debris each year as a nation—twice the amount of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generated. Only an average of 38% of this mixed C+D debris gets diverted from landfill! As a result, GHG emissions and high costs are incurred to transport wasted materials and pay tipping fees to landfills nearing capacity. Furthermore, new materials are too often purchased from virgin resource supply chains, increasing our embodied carbon.
Panelists: David Briefel, LEED AP ID+C, BD+C, Sustainability Director, Gensler Justin Green, Executive Director and Founder, BIG Reuse + BIG Initiatives Robert Rising, Principal, NYCitySlab Jos de Krieger, Architect / Partner, Superuse Studios
