Demolitions clear a site of its building materials by the most expedient means. It’s cheap, it’s fast, and it creates millions of tons of waste across the US each year. Deconstruction, on the other hand, is the careful disassembly and removal of building material for the intention of reuse, repurposing, and recycling. The goal of deconstruction and our company’s guiding principle is to divert as much material from landfill as possible.
Where you come in:
As a Deconstruction Crew Member, you do deconstructions. That means learning, mastering and performing our building material removal process.
We work on roughly 1- 2 deconstructions a week at different locations throughout San Diego and Orange Counties and spend 1-2 days a week at the warehouse processing inventory (cleaning, repairing, palletizing) and performing deliveries. While our primary focus is on finish deconstruction (removing appliances, cabinetry, millwork, and flooring) we will occasionally take on full-structure deconstructions as training opportunities to teach the removal of pre-finish and structural material (drywall, insulation, subfloor, studs and roofs). Sometimes it’s hard and heavy; most of the time it is thoughtful and strategic.
As more and more states are mandating deconstruction, deconstruction workers are being sought after for their unique skillset. This is a great opportunity to master a burgeoning trade.
We look for team members who care about the work, each other and the planet. If that’s you, and you’re also an active listener and creative problem solver, read on!
What we offer:
- Deconstruction training program
