Abstract: The ongoing process of rapid developments and changes in al1 respects including building industry characterizes our modern society. The current built environment puts higher demands on flexibility and changeability. The Demountable Building Concept is a building method that applies prefabricated elements that could be easily demounted without major damage. The aims and advantages of the Demountable Building method (such as saving of energy and raw materials, waste reduction, reuse and recycling of building elements) correspond with those of Sustainable Building. Putting the Demountable Building concept in a new and wider perspective will optimize its environmental impact.
