Making Reuse A Reality For Your Organization

FitzGerald Freelance

Many times projects need to be paired with the right people. We have a vast network of buyers and reclaimed materials that we can connect you with. We are associated with a lot of people in the building world and would be happy to help you find the materials you need for your dream project.


Expert Guidance

The most important step on any demolition project is knowing numbers and the materials. Beyond identifying materials, it is essential to understand what condition they are in and whether there will be redeeming value once they have been removed. At FitzGerald Deconstruction & Reuse we have developed a process to document a building by identifying its materials, quantifying them, defining quality and potential, then providing an estimated valuation of the materials.   The data make sensible decision making easy allowing you to capitalize on your project, let us help you save money and make a positive impact on your project.


Achieve Your Goals

The first step for project success is clearly defined specifications for reuse and recycling of your waste streams. We provide a template that can be customized to your project’s needs while retaining the best management practices. We can also collaborate with your design professionals to ensure they have everything they need.

Business Meeting

Profit From Your Project

Using our list of industry contacts, we’re able to connect bidders with buyers of construction and demolition materials. Having an inventory & quantity for each material in the building will allow bidders to draw conclusions as to how much they can expect from selling materials they salvage. This approach will encourage the careful handling of materials to preserve value. In addition, this information will drive a more competitive bidding process. This is one way to encourage reuse while driving costs down. We have successfully employed this approach on many projects resulting in extensive savings.


Obtaining the Product

When designers, builders, and developers need specific materials or have specific materials in mind, we have a broad network to choose from. When it comes to acquiring specific reclaimed materials our network is second to none and we can find exactly what our customers are looking for.
