Building Value is a social enterprise powered by Easterseals Redwood. Founded in 2004, Building Value was created with two goals: First, to create sustainable training and lucrative career opportunities for people facing challenges to employment; Second, to build a construction model and retail store for reclaiming, recycling, and repurposing building materials.
Today, Building Value trains more than 50 clients each year in deconstruction, salvage, retail, and customer service. Our professional deconstruction service works with national and regional builders, developers, and property owners to carefully deconstruct residential and commercial buildings. We treat each structure as a “living classroom” in our training.
This model offers great tax advantages as well as environmentally-conscious options for property owners as we remove all reusable and recyclable elements through deconstruction.
We have completed over 450 deconstruction and demolition projects, continually getting referrals from customers including Cincinnati Port Authority, DBGC Construction, Crapsey & Gilles, The Christ Hospital, the City of Cincinnati, and numerous satisfied residential clients.
Visit our retail store at 4040 Spring Grove Avenue in the heart of Northside’s historic district to see thousands of one-of-a-kind products – including cabinet sets, doors, building materials, and architectural gems – all diverted from landfills.
We’re committed to a “Triple Bottom Line”
- To create sustainable training and employment opportunities for people facing economic disadvantages,
- To reduce environmental waste by salvaging building materials, and
- To offer a second chance to people and products.
