Deconstruction Services

Deconstruction Services

You know Habitat for Humanity does new construction, but did you know we also do construction in reverse? It is called Deconstruction, it is the selective disassembly of a structure specifically for reuse, recycling and waste management. Deconstruction focuses on giving reusable materials within a home or building, a new life by means of careful removal by our deconstruction crew.  

The deconstructed materials are given a second chance at life when they are delivered to our ReStores to be resold. All proceeds from deconstruction go to Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver to build affordable homes for middle to low income families.
