Andrijeski Farmstead / Reservoir Ridge Natural Area
Fort Collins, Colorado
Sustainable and environmental practices moved to the top of the City of Fort Collins’ priority list in 2009 and NCC was contracted to deconstruct a farmstead from the 1890’s and two other structures on north Overland Trail. The project garnered much attention, prompting the Discovery Channel to film our technical and training procedures for their “Renovation Nation” show hosted by Steve Thomas.
The goal of the project was to restore the site into a natural area with paths and walkways.
- 240 students from Pioneer Charter school, Poudre School District and Colorado State University all participated in safely deconstructing three structures.
- Over 300 cubic yards of wood and 3½ tons of materials recycled
- Three students certified in DeConstruct™
