lifecyclebuildingcenterGeorgians send an estimated 730,000 tons of readily reusable building materials into landfills each year. These are local materials that can be utilized in their original form, versus being recycled through energy-intensive processes. Your role as a designer, contractor, building owner or facility manager in the material reuse process is critical. Join us as we review the benefits and lessons learned in planning and implementing successful deconstruction and salvage projects. Gain new tools to transform the industry‘s throw-away mentality: spec language, expedited permitting incentives and more. We’ll also explore the operational strategies guiding Atlanta’s new nonprofit reuse facility: the Lifecycle Building Center.

Instructors bios:       Shannon Goodman, LEED AP BD+C, previously spent 13 years working as an architect, most recently with Perkins+Will (P+W). After coordinating a large salvaged building material donation for P+W in 2009, Shannon helped form the LBC in 2010. Prior to becoming the Executive Director, Shannon served as LBC Board Chair.

Adam Deck previously managed one of the largest retail building material reuse centers in the country. Adam also spent five years at Southface working in both residential and commercial programs.
