Abstract

The construction industry is very resource intensive. At every stage of a project lifecycle, huge pressures are exerted on the natural environment for materials, where raw materials are extracted, delivered to factories,
manufactured into building materials, and delivered to construction sites. The construction and post construction use of buildings up to demolition stage involve the consumption of huge volumes of materials and generation of much waste in the process.
