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.
