A modern era truism is that "Waste is a design flaw". Consequently true, the demolition industry does not create waste but handles that which others put there.

Construction will never be truly sustainable until consideration is given, during design and planning, to the deconstruction legacy.

Design for Deconstruction (DfD) has been around construction for some time but has never engaged with the sector that deconstructs.

This conference brings together, for the first time, those that design, specify, construct, manage and legally frame construction projects with those that take them down and handle the deconstruction legacy.

The conference will consider nano-technology and how this may impact in deconstruction. You will hear about the extensive work being done on steel re-use and reclamation, and how Building Information Modelling (BIM) could be extended into deconstruction. The conference will also discuss how one might establish a legal obligation for deconstruction as part of the initial design and planning of a building.
