Deconstruction is the process of taking apart a building so that building materials can be reused. Many building materials – including cabinets, light fixtures, bricks, doors, plumbing fixtures, windows and much more – can be reused instead of being sent to a landfill.
Residential properties in Ramsey and Washington Counties, including multi-unit structures with a maximum of four units, can receive up to $5,000 ($2 per square foot) for projects that use deconstruction/salvage techniques.
Commercial properties in Ramsey and Washington Counties, including multi-unit residential properties with more than four units, can receive up to $10,000 ($2 per square foot) for projects that use deconstruction/salvage techniques.
Categories of material types that are acceptable for deconstruction include:
Category A includes brick or stone blocks, cabinets, casing around doors and windows, light fixtures, mantels, molding, plumbing fixtures, solid wood doors, stair treads and railings, stone details, radiators, wood-framed windows and shutter or siding.
Category B includes wood flooring, dimensional lumber and ceiling and floor joists.
