Locations: Construction Junction and Millvale Food+Energy Hub, if possible a live deconstruction site.
Construction Junction our conference host, allows us to visit various organizations such as the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, Project RE_, Free Ride-a bicycle reuse non-profit, Computer Reach-a computer recycling operation and Studio Blue-a refurbished furniture painting project for youth in detention.
The Millvale Food + Energy Hub is a multi-purpose facility which serves as a home to sustainability nonprofits (New Sun Rising, The Food Trust, and Fractracker Alliance), a commercial kitchen and processing center (412 Food Rescue, Sprezzatura Cafe), and community event and education space in harmony with the goals of the Millvale EcoDistrict. This repurposed 10,000 sq ft facility was a former Moose Lodge social hall which now includes a state of the art Solar DC Microgrid and building automation system. Reuse is a central theme in the building's design through the construction of a cafe counter, green partition wall, and canopy highlighting reclaimed materials from Construction Junction, design from the Urban Design Build Studio, and construction with the Trade Institute of Pittsburgh.
