The Deconstruction certificate program is structured to be completed in one semester. The program introduces the basic practice of building deconstruction and building material (architectural and structural) salvage. The program also introduces typical construction methods, structural considerations and fundamental properties of building material. There will be an introduction to key components of site assessment, project planning and market considerations. Finally, the program will provide a hands-on deconstruction experience in a laboratory and/or in the field (on site).
