•          Deconstruction is the efficient disassembly of structures with an eye towards reuse.  Deconstruction can be strategically applied to compliment blight removal efforts in an environmentally sensitive way while creating jobs and greatly increasing economic activity in Detroit. 

•          Deconstruction creates 6 jobs to every 1 demolition job with a starting wage of over $12.00.

•          Starting with wages paid to deconstruction workers, to bulk lumber sales, to material processors preparing lumber for the mill, to mill workers preparing wood for an order, to the carpenter and craftspeople installing the wood in its new home.  These economic multipliers are invaluable. Deconstructing 1 home would generate 5x the money spent in economic activity – 5x more powerful than if that home was thrown in the landfill.

•          Reclaim Detroit has saved 50,000 tons of materials from going into landfills.

 Not every blighted structure is suitable for Deconstruction.  We cannot deconstruct those that are fire damaged or those that have suffered prolonged exposure to the elements.
