Design for Disassembly (DfD) focuses on the design and construction of buildings with end of life in mind. This includes the products installed in the building and their replacement, ongoing maintenance and repairs, and decommissioning. This report provides resources for designers and architects to implement DfD principles, and highlights opportunities to use wood in construction.
This report summarizes the considerations and decisions that resulted in the configuration of the Vienna House Project. The findings are distilled from interviews with key members of the Project Steering Committee during the schematic design stage.
