Case Study from the GreenJobs BC Forum on Retrofits & Building - February 10, 2012

Pacific Community Resources recently completed a pilot project in partnership with the City of Vancouver and Service Canada to deconstruct two Vancouver homes and train 20 at-risk youth in an intensive life and employability skills program. 93% of the materials from the deconstructed homes avoided incineration or the landfill. Michel Pouliot will provide an overview of the current and future opportunities this industry presents for at-risk youth and not for profit organizations. Michel will present with Pauline Dan who measured the environmental impact of the deconstruction pilots and conducted a detailed analysis of the opportunities and challenges for the deconstruction industry.
