Residential Deconstruction

What Is It?

Deconstructing a building allows you to take it apart systematically, so you can salvage reusable building materials and recycle materials that can’t be reused. Salvaging reusable building materials reduces the amount of construction waste sent to landfills and reduces the demand on natural resources.
If you are removing housing, deconstruction may allow you to begin the process before we have issued you a new building permit for your site. (A new building permit is usually required before you can demolish housing; see Demolition of Housing for other rules that may apply).
To qualify for a residential deconstruction permit, you must:
  • Reuse a minimum of 20 percent of the building materials, by weight and excluding asphalt, brick, and concrete
  • Recycle or reuse a minimum of 50 percent of the building materials, by weight and excluding asphalt, brick, and concrete
  • Recycle or reuse 100 percent of asphalt, brick, and concrete
  • Submit a Waste Diversion Plan with your permit application and plans (as described in Directors Rule 4-2009, Demolition Permits With Waste Diversion Plan)
  • Submit a Waste Diversion Report that identifies the actual rates of salvaged and recycled materials when deconstruction is complete
If you want to deconstruct a building in an environmentally critical area, such as a wetland or a steep slope, there are different restrictions you must follow.

How Much Does It Cost?

The fee for a deconstruction permit is the base fee, per the Fee Subtitle, plus any additional review fees. You may need to pay additional fees if the disturbed ground area exceeds 750 square feet or if your project needs deep cuts in the soil or shoring (supports to prevent collapse).
You pay your fees when you submit your plans. You pay the remaining fees when you pick up your permit.

How Long Does It Take?

Our goal for completing a review of your residential deconstruction (demolition) permit application is 2 days.
We will review your plans to make sure they meet our code standards. Your inspector will review building code requirements on site during your inspections.
