Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Shopping center deconstruction, Fayetteville, North Carolina
Starting over: Building deconstruction emphasizes recycling

Crews have spent several days demolishing an old shopping center at Raeford Road and Scotland Drive, prompting some to wonder what's taking so long - and whether new stores are on the way.

Here are some answers.

The people who are marketing the land hope to spur interest among buyers by tearing down the center, which is about a block west of Ireland Drive.

But it's not a typical bulldozer project. Some consider the process to be the future of demolition - one in which as much material as possible is recycled and reused.

Brian Watson actually calls it "deconstruction."

"This is an alternative to the traditional smash and go where a company comes in and smashes everything and dumps it all in a landfill," said Watson, who is operations manager for Waste-Not Demolition and Recycling. That's the Fayetteville-based company contracted to get rid of the buildings.
