Reuse Design in Chicago: ReBuilding Exchange and Projects in the Field

New Projects vs Rehab Projects are 20 to 1.

Differences between DEMOLITION and DECONSTRUCTION.

Delta Institute’s new green initiative: ReBuilding Exchange

The mission of the ReBuilding Exchange is to divert building materials from the waste stream and make them accessible to the public for reuse, protecting community health, creating jobs and saving resources. We do this through the promotion of sustainable deconstruction practices, by making used build materials available for purchase at low costs, by providing educational resources and by creating programming that builds community and rebuilds Chicago’s neighborhoods.
