“This six story apartment building on Capitol Hill was overrun by transients and the owner requested we start the demolition process by handwrecking the structure while they sorted out final construction permit issues and relocation of the trolley wire connected to the building. From the six inch thick solid wood floors and two inch thick solid interior walls we salvaged over 140,000 board feet of old growth dimensional lumber and generated over 70,000 used brick from the exterior walls.”

At Demolition Man Inc, environmental consciousness is always a high priority. We strive to stay aware of existing environmental conditions and to understand what we as a company can do to protect our environment. Rather than add bulk to landfills, Demolition Man Inc. first salvages components for re-use, and then recycles as much construction debris as possible. Many new government-funded projects require LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environment Design) Certifications. LEED Certification gives developers excellent guidelines on how to “build green” on any project. Demolition Man Inc. respects and understands the U.S. Building Council’s reasoning for these standards of excellence.
