About Lifecycle Building Center

Atlanta, Georgia

Lifecycle Building Center (LBC) is focused on construction material reuse in Atlanta and nationwide. Its mission is to reduce solid waste disposal, promote resource efficiency, stimulate economic development and empower citizens to improve their own built environment. Since 2013, Lifecycle Building Center has played a key role in diverting thousands of tons of building materials from the waste stream. The organization has redefined how a community can divert construction materials from landfills and put them to good use in new projects; reusing local materials reduces embodied carbon emissions compared to a new alternative.

The core of LBC is the Reuse Center & Store in Southwest Atlanta, which accepts material donations and redirects them back into the community through resale to the public at deep discounts and donations to nonprofits.

Between its deconstruction program, job training and nonprofit partnerships, LBC has established itself as an industry leader in Atlanta. Recognized by the EPA, Department of Energy and the City of Atlanta for its work, Lifecycle Building Center has played a vital role in establishing the ReBuildATL Coalition to empower disadvantaged communities in Atlanta’s westside through job training and employment opportunities.
