Architectural Salvage Industry Takes a Step Forward in Philadelphia

Pennsylvania DEP Secretary Kathleen McGinty announced a $100,000 grant to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance in Philadelphia for a one-year study to examine supply and demand issues, analyze market barriers, and identify related opportunities for recycling recovered residential building materials in Southeastern Pennsylvania (see story). Locally, ReStore is an architectural salvage outlet in Port Richmond that provides architectural salvage, deconstruction services, and design consultation. Nationally, the journal of the architectural salvage industry is the Architectural Salvage News, providing readers with valuable sourcing information to help locate suppliers of specialty products - both salvaged and reproduction - and introducing readers to new tools that help them run their architectural salvage businesses.
