In Deconstruction Utah News: 

We are excited to announce an upcoming joint project with Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity (HFH). Over the summer, TRP will coordinate with HFH to host 10 volunteer deconstruction events at the site of the future Hope Lodge. Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity, local companies, and the general public will pry, pull, and leverage as much reusable material from an existing 1950's LDS church in downtown Salt Lake City. This event will not only showcase deconstruction to Utah, but demonstrate the American Cancer Society's commitment to the health and longevity of the community.

On April 23rd, I had the privilege to address the Salt Lake City Council regarding Mayor Becker’s Recycling and Construction Waste Management plan. The council affords the public 2 minutes to comment on such proposals. I used this opportunity to make the council aware of The ReUse People’s presence in Utah, what deconstruction is, and how it benefits direct and indirect stakeholders. After my two minutes were up, Councilman Soren Simonsen asked a follow up question; something seldom done during public comment.

Heading in a new direction has always been equal parts exciting and nerve-wracking for me. There’s the anticipation of reward and hope for a better future. But there’s also the sobering reality of leaving behind the familiar and stepping closer to the unknown. Becoming the Utah Regional Manager for The Reuse People of America is no different. I am excited to join an organization that provides an alternative to our ingrained methods of demolition and waste. “Smash and trash” gets the job done, but it isn’t the best answer for demolishing a building. Deconstruction is.

Scott and Pamela Weiss paid a little under $5 million for a home in Palo Alto, Calif., last year. Come tax time, they expect to get back about $66,000 for tearing it down.
