Two-day Workshop Training

TRI has trained dozens of demolition, building and remodeling contractors throughout the country to become TRP-certified deconstruction contractors. Now, homeowners, designers, public officials, architects and contractors can receive a modified two-day version of this training, earning a certificate of completion. If you are a contractor interested in diversifying, a homeowner wanting to remodel, a used building-materials retailer looking for more and better materials, or simply an interested professional or preservationist, this course is for you.

The course covers the entire deconstruction process, from project review and bidding, to the shipment of salvaged materials. Lectures and activities cover the following:
