Demolition

Demolition of three existing buildings on the two sites began in February 2008 to make way for the Green Square Complex. The three buildings are the former Elks and Thompson buildings on the NRC site and the old YWCA building on the DENR site. The demolition is being conducted sustainably, with at least 95 percent of demolition waste reused, recycled or salvaged in some way to prevent the waste from ending up in the landfill.

A Case Study was completed regarding the demolition construction debris on the site.  98.8 percent of the material was recycled.  Click here to read the complete Case Study.
