Just swapped a few emails with Michael this afternoon. He'd like everyone to know about the - 2008 Great Lakes Deconstruction Conference which will be held here in Buffalo on November 16-18th.
Buffalo ReUse and the Building Materials Reuse Association (BMRA) are sponsoring the first Great Lakes regional conference on developing and implementing building deconstruction and other creative solutions to address problems and solutions surrounding vacant and abandoned structures.
Join us in Buffalo on November 16–18 for the first Great Lakes regional conference on developing and implementing building deconstruction and other creative solutions to address vacant and abandoned structures in your hometown.
Many cities in the Northeast and the Great Lakes region have experienced significant population losses in the last half of the 20th century. This population loss has led to serious decline and blight in many urban neighborhoods. Abandoned and vacant houses are often the most obvious symptom of this decline and can contribute to numerous issues affecting the success and vitality of residents, businesses and governments within these urban centers. At this conference we’ll explore the use of deconstruction, building materials reuse, vacant land management and other creative solutions to specifically address issues unique to abandoned housing and vacant lots in urban centers.
