A guide for identifying the reuse potential of construction products
Reclamation audits are a crucial step towards enhancing the amount of building materials and products being effectively reused by the construction industry. In regard to this general objective, reclamation inventories can serve different purposes:
• Providing building owners and designers of new projects with information on samesite reuse opportunities.
• Advertising the availability of potentially reusable materials to reclamation professionals and other interested parties who will contribute to the effective circulation of the elements.
• Indicating which elements need to be carefully dismantled to the demolition contractor.
• Serving as a decision tool for discussing the effective reclamation and the destination of the products.
This manual presents a method on how to conduct these audits.
