Building Basics: Minimising waste (2nd edition)
Construction and demolition waste is mainly solid waste and typically includes packaging from new building materials as well as wood, plasterboard, metal, concrete and rubble resulting from construction, renovation and demolition of buildings. Plant matter and unwanted soil shifted during the building process also fall into the waste category.
The key steps to follow in design and construction are to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover. This book is aimed at builders, designers, tradespeople and educators and explains with detailed guidance and case studies how these steps can be achieved.
