Marquette University Deconstruction: A Habitat for Humanity, Marquette University & Mortenson Construction Partnership

Prior to the demolition of five buildings on the Marquette University campus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Marquette and Mortenson Construction partnered with Habitat for Humanity to salvage and deconstruct a wide variety of elements within the buildings. 

In total, the Habitat for Humanity team volunteered 300 hours to salvage seven tons of material including: 164 chairs, 64 plastic waste baskets, 100's of shelves tables, and filing cabinets, 25 metal radiator covers, and a wooden boat among hundreds of other items!  The donation from this project will help fund one-third of a Habitat for Humanity home in the Milwaukee community.
