Innovative Design for the Future – Use and
Reuse of Wood (Building) Components
We aim to answer the questions:
How easy is it to reuse wood from current buildings especially as structural material?
How can the past experience help the future?
We aim to identify the key problem areas and propose technical and methodological solutions to address them. This knowledge will be transferred to industry to avoid inadvertent and unnecessary problems for future generations.
The Wood Recyclers’ Association (WRA) has made an urgent appeal for waste wood samples from the demolition of pre-2007 buildings. They are trying to avoid what they see as a potential crisis
Following on from our visit to Seagrave House and Davitt House in Dublin, which were in the preliminary strip-out phase of demolition, NUIGalway and UCD visited OCR Waste Management in County Roscommon
A doctoral thesis thoroughly written, with references for every affirmation and percent shown. Wood took an important place in Loriane’s assiduous work.
