Building materials in German non-residential buildings - an analysis

The preservation of the natural resources moves more and more into the focus of the politics. It is expected that this shift in perspective will have a future effect on the building and construction industry too. To the judgement of the future requirements for building-materials knowledge is required besides reliable forecasts about the building activity both in the new construction and in the rehabilitation also about the amounts of building-materials which can be regained by deconstruction measures as recycling material from the existing built volumes. The knowledge about the amount and distribution of the building-materials forms the base for a systematic and economic use in terms of circular flow because the attainable level of utilisation also depends on the availability of corresponding amounts of recycled material besides structurally engineered requirements on the building materials in proportion to the general requirements for building-materials.
This contribution is thematically particularly aimed at the trade associations of the building-material manufacturers, planners and further persons responsible for announcements. It shall show future evolutional trends of the legislative framework and give insights into the building stock. The article deals with the topic of the building material composition at the example of non-residential buildings in Germany. Different databases are introduced and judged with regard to that one of the quality regarding the information derivable from it. The evaluation of the current building activity statistics gives an impression about the quantitative distribution of the building-materials used mainly over different kinds of non-residential buildings. The result of an analysis based on the BKI object database is opposed to it comparatively. It is shown at the example of agricultural buildings in which places the essential material depositories are located and which quantity these have in the building.
