I’m glad to see people are starting to think more about recycling steel, aluminum, concrete, etc. … and building deconstruction is a huge source of these materials.
The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: “Twenty-five hundred tons of concrete, 350 tons of steel and 9 tons of aluminum window frames will be left after a seven-story downtown building is taken down.
But instead of ending up in the scrap heap, the concrete will be ground up and used to fill the site, steel will be melted to create construction supports and the aluminum will be reused in cans and other products.
As companies become more environmentally aware, that attitude is reflected in the buildings they work in and the ones they renovate or tear down. “
