Abstract

Due to an increasing need for buildings to meet sustainability criteria, the deconstruction and refurbishing market is a thriving market worldwide. Considering that construction and demolition waste account for a large proportion of all wastes produced, novel and scalable solutions for systemised building deconstruction have to be developed. Systemised building deconstruction could serve as the microeconomic basis for improved resource productivity, the recycling economy and urban mining on a macroeconomic level. It also sates a promising field for the application of automated and robotic technology in construction. The advantages of these technologies can be utilized to gain efficiency and finally outperform conventional methods. The presented research explores a development direction that considers the weaknesses and strengths of the real-world company approaches conducted so far and provides conceptual solutions for a compatibility of robot supported, systemized deconstruction with conventional deconstruction methods.
