The Delta Institute and their affiliate, the Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago, Illinois help lead the national effort to educate on deconstruction and reuse. The mission of the Rebuilding Exchange is to create a market for reclaimed building materials.
You will hear from Elise Zelechowski, former Executive Director of Rebuilding Exchange, Meegan Czop, Director of Business Development at Rebuilding Exchange and Eve Pytel, Director at Delta Institute.
They will be discussing how the Rebuilding Exchange was started, how it has grown, and lessons learned in the process. Also learn about the broader building materials reuse marketplace and how the market is growing in the Chicago area, resulting in greater demand for deconstruction.
