Feasibility of Using Building Deconstruction at Wisconsin?S Badger Army Ammunition Plant
This report documents a study to evaluate the feasibility of using wood-framed building deconstruction at the Badger Army Ammunition Plant (BAAP) to salvage for resale and reuse building materials, especially the structural lumber contained in the many wood-framed buildings. Deconstruction is a building dismantlement method based on the separation and recovery of building materials and components for reuse and recycling. In contrast to demolition, which focuses on the mechanical reduction of the building for easy transportation and disposal in a landfill, deconstruction allows a greater degree of salvage and reuse of building materials and components. Wood-framed buildings are particularly good candidates for deconstruction because wood members are typically too damaged for reuse after using conventional demolition techniques.
