On January 17th, MassDEP will recap key learnings from previous meetings, provide a summary of essential elements included in deconstruction and reuse ordinances implemented in other cities/states, and hear what steps are being taken in two Massachusetts municipalities to enable deconstruction and reuse.

Participants can then offer feedback on what tools and/or support would help move the needle in their sector (architects/engineers/designers, deconstruction and demolition, policy, reuse, historic preservation, workforce development, etc.). The event will conclude with a snapshot of what is planned for this spring/summer to enable regional deconstruction efforts across the state.

Speakers include:

§  Abbey Massaro, RecyclingWorksMA and Center for EcoTechnology

§  Randy Scott, Select Demo Services and Hancock Academy

§  Susan Cascino, City of Boston

§  Michael Orbank, STO Building Group, Carbon Leadership Forum Boston

Who should attend: Municipal officials, advocacy groups, historic preservationists, architects/engineers/construction professionals, deconstruction and demolition businesses, waste haulers, building materials and reuse organizations, solid waste and recycling professionals.
