Safe building deconstruction tools or safety equipment


New tools and/or safety equipment to advance the safe, cost-effective deconstruction of buildings. Concrete, asphalt, and scrap metal are already being diverted at high levels from construction and demolition waste streams. Thus, the deconstruction tools or safety equipment should focus on the recovery of wood or other commonly disposed building materials or the safe removal of materials that are barriers to deconstruction, such as painted drywall. The innovative tool or safety equipment should support the safe reuse of building materials while minimizing damage to the materials and contributing to safer or more efficient deconstruction.
