Demolition practices have changed radically in the last decade due to both commercial and health and safety pressures. Processes are now machine-intensive and tend to direct material streams towards recycling rather than reclamation and reuse. Hence, if reclaimed goods were needed the project team would need to influence the demolition process. 9): – locating buildings due for demolition; – locating demolition or reclamation contractors who will salvage the required items; – identifying and selecting the components and materials required prior to demolition; – organizing the transportation, cleaning and storage of reclaimed goods; – costs of goods, transportation, refurbishment and storage.

Cheap items that require high labour input to make them reusable are likely to be ● ● ● ● uneconomic; it could be worthwhile focusing on high-value materials. Items that may be difficult to reuse in their original role may have alternative uses. It could be worthwhile targeting major refurbishment projects for materials – high profile office makeovers, refurbishment of listed buildings etc. The contractor is essential to the success of the project and must be involved in decisions about material and product selection and purchase, and the feasibility of proposed reuse.

The timber supplier provided a guarantee that all timber would be nail-free. The supplier was also responsible for holding the risk associated with the quality of the timber. Quality was not a major issue with the internal studwork as it is neither structural nor exposed to view or weather. After it has been installed the timber is also no longer visible. The contractors on site had no issues with using the reclaimed timber and have considered using it again on future projects. The project required 54,000m of 50 ϫ 100mm and 75 ϫ 100mm reclaimed timber for the internal studwork and, due to the size of the order, a competitive price was arranged with the reclamation yard.
