Is nanotechnology the new asbestos?
Nano-technology is embedded into a large number of materials and components used in the built environment
There is some suggestion that nano-particles may have some similarities with asbestos i.e. hazardous to health when the particles are freed
If this fear is realised then there will be real challenges for the demolition & recycling sectors
This project will investigate what these challenges are likely to be.
What to do with composite cassette cladding?
Composite panels, such as those incorporating blown insulation and also other materials and services
These are a challenge to the demolition and recycling sector and will become more so in the future
This project will investigate what these challenges are likely to be
Is European wind the same as UK wind?
The design of temporary works to support retained facades is significantly affected by the calculation of wind forces
The demolition sector interacts closely with retained facades, often being responsible themselves for the support structure as part of the demolition package
This project will investigate how the use of Eurocodes will affect the design and hence the installation of retained facade temporary works
