Material Considerations

The diagram below looks at the proposed components for the dwelling and assesses whether each component meets specific criteria

– Can it be disassembled
– Can it be reused
– Can it be recycled

Considering these principles results in an innovative approach to circular and whole life zero carbon design.

Other considerations

– Services – connections and access
– Fixtures and fittings – ease of removal – surface mounted
– Restricting the use of tapes to allow materials to be reused
– Keeping each different material non adhered / in no way combined through glues of tapes to ensure each element can remain reusable or recyclable
