Abstract: The proposed BIM-SD tool is a software tool supporting the user in the predemolition audit
and CDW assessment of selective demolition projects. Its main objective is to support the
collection and management of information on the existing elements and materials in a
building to be demolished, the decision making around the optimal demolition sequence and
the management of the subsequent waste streams. Maximizing the recovery rate from
buildings will be fostered thanks to the visibility of the present materials in the pre-demolition
More in detail, the BIM-SD tool will ease calculations of inventory experts and/or demolition
experts, which nowadays are principally done by hand (or supported by basic tools such as
calculation sheets), potentially improving reliability of calculation, facilitating the traceability
of materials and quickening the evaluation of alternative demolition/recovery options.
It is expected that the tool can assist both demolition contractors for improving the production
of the waste audits which they already perform; and also building owners (and the team
commissioned for the design of the corresponding demolition works) in producing reliable
waste audits together with projects.
