Please attend an educational seminar
Green Building Resource Center (GBRC)
Recycling is improving in the City of Houston. What about old houses? What options do you have to divert construction material from the landfill? What do salvage professionals want from old houses? How can you be part of the solution?
Ms. Edmundson and Ms. Stevens will discuss what they do, how their organizations handle the deconstruction process and what generaly happens to the deconstructed material. Mr. Maldonado will discuss the deconstruction of a house on the site of a LEED Platinum house he designed, and how the owners benefitted from the ensuning tax credit. Mr. Koski will inform you about the ReUse Warehouse as a destination for reusable construction material.
Please RSVP to Steve Stelzer at email@example.com or 832.394.9050.
