April 9, 2020 - Re:Purpose Savannah has announced they were recently awarded one of four recipients of the 2020 Gulfstream Giving Grant in the amount of $20,000 for their Capacity Building for Landfill Diversion in Savannah’s Historic District project. 

The Capacity Building project is a structure that was designed in collaboration with faculty at Savannah Technical College and will be built at Re:Purpose’s lumber yard as an extension of the lumber racks. The building will provide additional coverage and working space to process reclaimed pieces as well as improve the shopping experience for customers. Using only recycled materials from deconstruction projects the structure will increase Re:Purpose’s capacity to divert more buildings per annum by producing more efficiency, a quicker turnaround, and environmental protection for workers.
