REBUS will have its scientific impact by contributing to the currently limited body of research dealing with reuse in the construction industry by addressing the following five major research questions:

  1. What underlying factors, attitudes, perceptions, motivations, challenges and opportunities drive different stakeholders to reuse building materials?
  2. How can existing methods be further developed to evaluate the technical performance of reuse solutions?
  3. How can a novel evaluation method be developed to assess the sustainability of different reuse strategies and solutions that meet the needs and requirements of users?
  4. How can new knowledge and solutions for reuse be tested for efficient implementation in practice in the Norwegian construction industry?
  5. How can network strategies affect users' attitudes and behaviour that lead to more sustainable consumption?
