Abstract: The building activity including construction, maintenance, demolition and the treatment of waste, moving and transporting large masses of materials are highly responsible for the energy and environmental problems. The communal sphere, with the building sector can have 40% share of the total national energy demand, resulting also in environmental disadvantages in similar rate. Our investigation started in the agricultural, rural fields. Based upon exact survey and calculations on hundreds of different farm structures the rate of estimated reusability has been nearly 50%. Extra energetic and environmental benefits can come from the local functional reuse of buildings or their materials in case of their demolition. Further even more environmental advantages are expected by afar-seeing conscious design.
Key words: farm structures, building materials, demolition, reuse, recycling, environmental management
