Want to offer your clients more of the benefits of green building techniques and practices? Deconstruction, the process of selective disassembly of an existing building, allows you to leverage existing property value for the additional tax benefits while offering clients an environmentally friendly value-added service and offsetting the cost of renovations
If you are undertaking a major residential or commercial renovation, you are probably used to implementing a traditional demo process. The demo process includes labor, haul-away, and disposal costs. But the materials in your project have a real, tangible value (tax deductions, societal and environmental benefits) that traditional demolition isn’t designed to extract and cannot tap into.
The solution is simple with an age old process (or variation of) called deconstruction. Deconstruction disassembles the current structure piece by piece in such a fashion that the pieces can be reused and given a second life. This allows the deconstructor to leverage the financial value of the used building materials through a donation to a 501(c)3 charity. Per the US Tax Code, the full fair market value of the donated used building materials is tax deductible. Additionally, any deconstruction expenses over and above the typical demolition expense is also tax deductible. The deconstruction process may even qualify for LEED points as well as helping to keep the project in compliance with local environmental/governmental regulations.
Green Donation Consultants is regarded as the national leader in building deconstruction. Our deconstruction documentation packets (including a used building materials appraisal) account for and fully support the full fair market value of a donation of those used building materials. With thousands of completed projects and more than a decade of experience, your clients can rest comfortably when choosing to work with us. Green Donation Consultants is the premier deconstruction consulting firm in the nation!

- Audit Expertise We’ve completed literally thousands of deconstruction appraisals since 2010 and have had very few audited by the IRS.
