Abstract

One of the main concerns of environmental sustainability is
to reduce the depletion of valuable materials and natural
resources. To do so, construction waste management needs
to be considered in the early stages of building components
design and preparation. Industrial, Flexible and Demountable
building system (IFD) is attempting to create more adaptable
buildings while managing its end-of-life more efficiently and
focusing on the long-term performance of the structure and
materials. This research focuses on the development of an
IFD system for a two-story residential layout. In this regard,
proposing a procedure to evaluate the conceptual prototype
was the key concern. The procedure contains assessments
according to IFD criteria and structural characteristics.
ETABS software was applied for analyzing the stability and
load bearing capacity of the structure. The assessments have
testified to the flexibility and strength of the designed layout.
Findings from this study have implications for future
investigations on detail design and experimental analysis of
the components.
