Abstract

Waste exchange is as a facilitator for construction and demolition waste deduction by reuse and recycling
in construction projects. The just-in-time philosophy, which has been well cultivated in the manufacturing
industry, is highly adoptable for demolition projects. Particularly, waste exchange that is usually perfomled
after the actual demolition process can be shi fled l()rward so that waste inventory tj'om demolition is
eliminated or reduced to facilitate waste reuse and recycling. A web-based waste exchange system is
an ideal platform to enable communications among project participants bef(xe a demolition project
commences so that waste materials can be sold before thiO:Y are produced. Theref()re, the productivity
of the demolition project could be improved. This research paper aims to investigate and analyse the
adoption of just-in-time philosophy in building demolition project management. It also describes the
development of the proposed web-based waste exchange system that implementsjust-in-time demolition
in detail, including its functionalities, intormation flows and major components
