Assessment 3

Part A – End of Life Assets: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle?

Select a Project of some kind. It can be of any particular nature, Capital Works, Operations, Asset, Activity or Facility. Consider the lifecycle of the

Project.

Examples include;

1.

Building a residential home

2. A mobile phone

3. A car park

4. A Theme Park

You are part of a multidisciplinary team designing a similar Project and your role is to assess what happens to each component of the Project when it has

reached the end of its useful life, both within the life of the Project and when the Project itself has reached its end.

What happens to each component after it is no longer required? Can you Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose or Recycle the component? What is

international practice compared to Australia? What impact does your assessment have on the design of the Project? Complete your assessment and then

submit it and explore the issues of waste minimisation in design with your peers on the discussion board.

Use the template provided to consider waste management options for each component of the Project (minimum 25 rows).
