Abstract: Year after year worldwide resources are becoming scarce. In the context of general reduction of resources it is necessary to save the used energy and to keep the spent resources in the material cycle. The fact of high material and energy consumption in the building sector leads to develop new method of constructions that have a sustainable use of natural resources. Besides the need to reduce CO2 emission, the reduction of the use of mineral products needs a major course of action in Europe.

Several research works have been investigated about walls made of units and mounted with unbounded prestressing. Extending the same construction principle of the walls to the slabs will reduce the diversity of building materials.

The contribution is based on the project REMOMAB which examined different principles for fully recyclable massive modular designs. This project focuses mainly on the structural considerations. As an approach for recyclable design of structures can be seen for example the use of walls made of separate units mounted by unbounded prestressing. Therefore it is possible to disassemble mounted structural elements in case of reaching its lifetime.
