Decreasing Construction Costs by Salvaging, Repurposing, Reusing and Recycling

If you’re thinking about renovating, expanding, or building new, have you thought about the items that you can salvage and reuse in the new space, or the items that can be recycled?

At Miron Construction, our goal is simply to minimize waste. We strive to work with the entire team to evaluate what can be salvaged and repurposed in the new space, what can be salvaged and donated to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, what can be salvaged and sold, and what can be recycled as part of the deconstruction phase (which is the removal of salvageable items in the reverse order of their construction). This process diverts materials from going to a landfill.

To learn how Miron implemented these techniques on specific projects (including work at the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and the Lake Mills Middle School), click here

Question: How is a tower crane assembled as the structure gets higher (how is the mast height raised, and then how is the jib arm gotten back up)?

Answer: Instead of trying to “tell” you how this happens, we decided it made more sense to “show” you how it happens. To see the assembly of a tower crane, click here
