The Benefits of Recycling Existing Structures Versus New Construction

I recently came across a great article in Crain’s Cleveland Business by sustainability expert Valerie Molinski, about green building. In it, Ms. Molinski talks about the environmental and economic benefits of retrofitting current buildings versus constructing brand new structures. After 10 years of facilitating deconstruction and reuse in California and educating the public about about its benefits, it’s thrilling to see it finally starting to gain traction. I felt compelled to comment on this article and am proud to share it here.
