Design for Deconstruction

Design for Deconstruction

The Construction & Demolition sector accounts for one third of all waste arisings. 80% of the building stock that will be in existence in 2050 has already been built. Therefore, as population continues to grow and natural resources deplete worldwide we must rethink the way we construct and deconstruct our built environment.

Come along to this session to learn about the possibilities, benefits and cost savings of implementing design for deconstruction in your business.


The course will be supported by:

• A face to face session at a location convenient to you
• Online material: accessible via Desktop / tablet or mobile both pre and post session
• Assessment: this can be completed online and is related to practical waste activities within your organisation

Aimed at
