Abstract: Construction waste has an adverse impact on the environment particularly in major cities. This research looks at how to minimize construction waste by decisions within the design process. Interviews with industry designers concluded that construction waste could be efficiently reduced at detailed design stage in a number of different ways. Different design scenarios were identified and their effectiveness in minimizing construction waste examined together with the implications on the design process. Information modelling software was used the optimised design process for different design scenarios and using virtual prototyping technology to model the impact of design decisions on the construction process.
