Comprehensive Project Planning

At Colorado Demolition & Deconstruction, waste diversion starts with meticulous project planning. Our experts, in partnership with contractors, city and county personnel and other private parties conduct thorough assessments to identify salvageable materials and minimize waste generation. By carefully evaluating the site and structures, we strategically plan deconstruction techniques that maximize resource recovery, ensuring that valuable materials are diverted from landfills and given a second life in future projects.

Salvage and Reuse

A core aspect of waste diversion lies in the salvaging and reuse of materials. Our skilled team excels at identifying reusable components, such as wood, metal, fixtures, and architectural elements. By salvaging these materials, we significantly reduce waste and minimize the need for new resource extraction. Through partnerships like Resource Central and Habitat for Humanity as well as state and local organizations, we facilitate the reuse of salvaged materials, promoting a circular economy that conserves resources and reduces environmental impact.

Responsible Waste Management

While salvage and reuse take precedence, responsible waste management is an integral part of waste diversion. Colorado Demolition & Deconstruction employs eco-friendly strategies to manage construction debris effectively. By working closely with waste management facilities, we ensure that any waste requiring disposal is handled responsibly, adhering to local regulations and implementing sustainable disposal methods. Our commitment to responsible waste management minimizes the environmental burden associated with demolition & deconstruction projects.

Safety and Hazard Mitigation

Waste diversion goes hand in hand with prioritizing safety and mitigating hazards. Our highly trained professionals are equipped to identify potentially hazardous materials, such as asbestos and lead-based paint, commonly found in older structures. Through strategic partners, meticulous planning and strict adherence to safety protocols, we ensure that hazardous waste is appropriately contained, removed, and disposed of, protecting both our team and the environment.

Community Engagement and Education

Colorado Demolition & Deconstruction actively engages with the community and other construction industry leaders to promote waste diversion practices. We are spearheading workshops, seminars, and outreach initiatives to educate the industry and public about the benefits of deconstruction and waste diversion. By fostering a deeper understanding of waste diversion's positive impact, we empower individuals and organizations to make sustainable choices in their own construction projects, contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment for future generations.
