NFDC/IDE Demolition and Refurbishment Resource Protocol



This guidance has been produced by the NFDC to help the demolition industry maximize the value of material resource recovered during the demolition and refurbishment process. The aim of this guidance is to provide information on the benefits of undertaking a pre-redevelopment audit prior to demolition or refurbishment and how to carry out the audit to ensure all opportunities for the reuse and recycling of materials are realized.

The guidance is aimed at construction clients, architects, surveyors, principal contractors, waste management contractors, and demolition contractors and is relevant to refurbishment projects, soft-strip activities, and complete demolition projects.
