Deconstruction

Helps the planet

Re-use Hawai‘i contributes to the sustainability of our island and planet. An enormous amount of energy is consumed in the harvest, production, transportation and distribution of new material. Reusing material conserves all of the energy a material has accumulated in its lifetime and minimizes the need to produce new material.

Additionally, every 1000 lb. of dimensional lumber that is salvaged for reuse is equivalent to reducing an estimated 1.1 tons of green house gasses from being emitted into the atmosphere. A typical single family house deconstruction will yield on average 8 tons of salvaged lumber. Choosing deconstruction is a way to make a very substantial contribution in the effort to curb global warming.
