Conventional demolition approaches of razing a building at the end of its life-cycle generate a large amount of mingled debris, which is difficult to reuse and recycle. Compared to demolition, deconstruction involves disassembling a building systematically and it is a more environmentally friendly alternative. Recent research studies have focused on the transition from demolition to deconstruction to minimize the amount of generated waste and maximize the amount of recycling and reusing…
