Sustainable demolition of the Faculty of Science building

The demolition of the high-rise building is ready. The remaining debris are removed and the area is cleared. For the demolition, the University applied the BREEAM evaluation method at the level of ‘Excellent’, which means that the demolition operations were carbon neutral and did not cause any form of nuisance. By conducting the work in various stages, the waste flows were easier to separate and the demolition process took less time. Debris was granulated on the demolition site for reuse as construction material or for road foundations.

A part of the steel construction will form the basis of a new green bike storage.
