Cook County Deconstruction Training

Delta Institute conducted a training for the Cook County Sheriff’s office on sustainable deconstruction practices, enabling the County to train inmates in deconstruction and use paid inmate crews to deconstruct hazardous structures in Southern Cook County and structures managed by the Cook County Forest Preserve. The program will pave the way for inmate trainees to become certified as Deconstruction Workers through the Building Materials Reuse Association, providing a pathway into the workforce for individuals with significant barriers to employment.
