Register for Re-Imagining the Built Environment: An “Advancing Domicology” Event

  • Location: Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center
  • Date: Monday, May 7, 2018 from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Registration Deadline: Friday, May 4, 2018

The U.S. generates a substantial amount of structural debris and construction waste annually, most of which ends up in landfills. Legacy communities in Michigan have had the additional burden of structural abandonment and blight which exacerbates the adverse economic, social, and environmental conditions. By reimagining our built environment paradigm, the Science of Domicology seeks to discover and apply innovative tools, models, policies, and programs that can end infrastructure abandonment and the negative economic, social, and environmental impacts associated with this phenomenon.

The "Re-Imagining the Built Environment" forum brings together a broad stakeholder network of thinkers and doers to discuss practical and promising policies and practices that can help us re-imagine our built environment. This event will include presentations from leaders in the material recycling, property management, and reuse industries. Panel discussions will address the policy and practice of structural abandonment and how structural materials may be re-used and thereby diverted from landfills.
