There are many benefits to deconstruction by hand, over demolition. To begin with, deconstruction by hand means hiring local labourers, skilled tradesmen, and a range of local services which has a positive impact on the local economy. Timber, metals and other materials are removed, sorted and salvaged or re-purposed. This means they are diverted from the landfill which has its own advantages - lower tipping fees, and less garbage. Money saved in reduced tipping fees goes back into hiring local labour and local services. Deconstruction by hand is a win-win - for the building owner, the economy of the region, and the environment. We'd be pleased to consult with you and outline the benefits of deconstruction for your next project.
"Bevin was truly a professional contractor. He worked with local First Nation labour to assist in developing much needed skills and taught the employees how you can demolish a building with not many of the materials ending up in the landfill. Ensuring the materials find new homes in new buildings was very impressive and showed environmental stewardship. I would definitely use Bevin again in the future."
