TRI Deconstruction Training and Certification Programs
TRP-Certified Deconstruction Contractor Training has trained and certified over 70 general building, remodeling and demolition contractors in 13 states to deconstruct buildings to our strict specifications. These contractors deconstruct over 200 projects each year, and the list is growing.
All trainings take place at the contractor’s office and on their job site. Contractors are provided with training manuals for themselves and their employees. These manuals along with a PowerPoint presentation and in-depth discussions involving estimating, bidding, marketing and sales, safety and government regulations. On the job site, our trainer’s work with each person and demonstrate how to remove each and every component to preserve their highest value.
