The research presented in this thesis focuses on importance of design for disassembly in permanent building structures. As a basis of the work, an overview of literature was listed, aiming at better understanding of the general design strategies used for inclusion of DfD method. Best practices are identified to show the feasibility and benefits of DfD and motivate the future implementation. Since the process of Design for Disassembly requires a lot of planning and organization, it is more likely to be approached through building with systems. Current technological opportunities in building construction allow architects and engineers to develop more sustainable building assemblies in the future. The analysis of building systems presented has a purpose to demonstrate the level of prefabrication requirement and joining techniques preferred for designing with demountability in mind. The necessity to design re-locatable, reusable and recyclable buildings is shifting back to need for industrially produced construction systems and extensive use of reversible connection systems.
