A Regional Opportunity to Promote Deconstruction and Reuse of Building Materials at JFK Corporate Square

Project Summary

Under U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Agreement No. X1982800-02-0, the New York City Industrial and Technology Assistance Corporation (ITAC) is promoting deconstruction and building materials reuse in New York City. Through its NY Wa$teMatch program, ITAC has developed a deconstruction and building materials reuse plan for a building project as well as resources to help building professionals implement these waste-reducing practices. The project originally sought to use Site 2 of the JFK Corporate Square development in Jamaica, Queens, as the site of a pilot project demonstrating deconstruction and building materials reuse. However, the developers of JFK Corporate Square withdrew from their commitment to the pilot project. NY Wa$teMatch has instead conducted the pilot project at the St. Francis of Assisi Venture, a joint development of the Durst Organization and Sidney Fetner Associates. In this quarter, NY Wa$teMatch completed the final phase of the project by facilitating the deconstruction and salvaging of materials at the St. Francis of Assisi Venture site. NY Wa$teMatch's other activities included:

1. Assisting organizations in New York City that seek to establish a deconstruction crew, start deconstruction businesses, or otherwise foster the acceptance of deconstruction and building materials reuse and recycling. (See section B-2.)
2. Developing the Case Study on Deconstruction at the St. Francis of Assisi Complex. (See section B-3.)
3. Developing and distributing materials promoting deconstruction, building materials reuse and green building. (See section B-3.)

Project development

On September 14, 2004, the Community Environmental Center (CEC) began deconstruction at the St. Francis of Assisi Venture site, which covers the following buildings: 125-127 and 129-131 W. 31st St., and 126-128, 130, and 132-134 W. 32nd St. Ten crew members worked on the site full-time for six weeks. Results of this project are documented in a case study (see Exhibit 3).

Partnership development

NY Wa$teMatch and the Community Environmental Center worked together to facilitate deconstruction at the St. Francis of Assisi Venture site. NY Wa$teMatch has been providing resources to help CEC in finding space and financial support for a reuse warehouse through outreach to other reuse groups, government agencies, LDCs, and contractors and developers. NY Wa$teMatch has also been promoting CEC's deconstruction services by referring companies interested in undertaking deconstruction projects to CEC. NY Wa$teMatch has also been assisting CEC in marketing the materials through its online Materials Exchange, outreach to other materials exchanges and outlets for salvaged building materials.

Resource development

In this quarter, NY Wa$teMatch distributed a request for proposals for printing the brochures that will be included in the marketing and education kit promoting deconstruction, Download the full report. (57K PDF)
