Environmental and economic assessment of design for recycling in wood building construction

 

One of the driving motivations behind the design for recycling concept is to decrease the environmental impacts of a buildings life cycle through maintaining the material quality after building disassembly, in order to enable its recycling in high value applications. If the concepts developed in the other work packages meet this goal, work package 6 strives to analyze the environmental impacts and the life cycle costs of a design for recycling building in comparison to a reference building representing the status quo.

Therefore, the main objectives of the WP are:

  • Determining the environmental and economic effects from new building concepts developed in WP 2 to identify the potential of design for recycling concept in wood construction
  • Environmental impact assessment of the products from recovered wood developed in WP 3
  • Improving the long-term documentation of BIM information on the materials used and the applicable disassembly and recycling concept
