About this book

Green and sustainable design is growing in prominence and popularity. National governments are active in promoting recycling and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. This guide addresses the opportunities at the design stage of a project for minimising the generation of waste by the use of recycled components and materials in buildings. It reviews current experience of designing with recycling in mind, the processes by which components and material can be reclaimed and the opportunities for specifying them in construction work.

`Expert advice on reuse and recycling in building construction is urgently needed. Using existing resources in a more responsible way is central to this design guide. A very welcome addition to the literature' Tom Woolley, Professor of Architecture, Queens University Belfast, and author of the acclaimed Green Building Handbook
