DeConstruct Training Program 2011/02/02

During the past three years, NCC has completed 13 deconstruct projects, including 15 separate buildings, and more than 65,000 sf of residential and commercial improvements. A combination of full-time participants, augmented with part-time volunteers, make up the bulk of the accrued training hours that result in the deconstruction of the building. Health, safety, and risk management are their most important project concerns. Instruction in proper and safe work procedures, including OSHA certification, is an integral part of the training program. One of the key logistical conditions of the project is that all participants are required to sign a detailed and specific liability waiver acknowledging the risks and the voluntary nature of the training program. Additionally, the Center carries general liability insurance designating it as a mobile vocational school.

For owners who anticipate constructing new improvements on their properties at some point in the future, a systematic deconstruction of the existing buildings may be applied to United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification process. Specific LEED points may be available in the areas of Construction Waste Management (Materials and Resources Credit) and Innovation in Design. Deconstruct projects that are registered with GBCI typically has a 6 year window in which to apply the available credits to the future new building construction.
