Abstract This thesis is motivated by the fact that today the building industry is a significant waste contributor. Especially at the end-of-life of the building it causes an enormous impact on the environment. Waste will be reduced by extending the lifetime of the short term buildings, and therefore the façade replacement for the commercial buildings must be encouraged. Though the result of waste due to the mixture of materials remains a problem during the end-of-life process, this barrier mainly comes from current construction practices that view the assembly as a unidirectional practice with an end goal of producing a final façade/building. A more cyclic or closed-loop view recognizes the need to consider, at the design stage, the disassembly process as well as the assembly process. Design for disassembly expresses such need. These strategies, which are in this thesis applied to an example facade of Arup, show possibilities to reduce waste by redesign.
