Report of results with key figures for re-use
CCBuild has developed opportunities for the arena´s users to receive a report of results for an inventory project that shows the potential effects of re-use on waste volumes, climate impact and project costs.
Quality criteria for reusable products
An important question regarding re-use of building products on an industrial scale is quality assurance.
Often high demands are put on products selected for projects. In order for used building products to be selected instead of newly produced ones, increased knowledge and clear communication about both their function and aesthetic is required. Moreover, documentation of the building products that are available for re-use is needed.
