Philadelphia is ripe for deconstruction of buildings and reuse of construction materials.
Circular Philadelphia is working with the deconstruction sector and city agencies like the Department of Licenses and Inspections to help architects, developers and contractors understand the value of deconstruction as an alternative to demolition. In a city where development is exploding, deconstruction is an important tool for keeping valuable building materials in circulation, creating jobs and reducing construction waste.
Circular Philadelphia has developed resources (available for download on the right of this page) that explain how deconstruction can generate savings on development projects and how to make use of existing permits and incentives in Philadelphia to capture those savings.
For an overview of how architects, developers, contractors and homeowners can adopt deconstruction practices in Philadelphia, saving money and valuable materials in the process, check our our webinar below. You’ll learn about tax incentives, streamlined permitting, and other resources available for projects that incorporate deconstruction and reuse.
