Our residential Sales Manager Paula Bahler was recently recognized as a “Woman in Reuse” by the Building Materials Reuse Association. Being a woman in an industry full of males has given her a unique perspective and experience:

“As a storyteller, I help an owner see the future of the materials in their obsolete building. Homeowners often have conflicted emotions about tearing down a home. Through empathy, a strong attention to details (pardon the pun), sometimes helping select a memento of the old house, our clients feels they have an understanding deconstruction partner. For our employees, coming from challenged back rounds, women can offer a maternal presence as a sympathetic ear or a stern mother’s look.  (I also bring cookies to the jobsite!)”
