Abstract: The thesis is about the use of Design for Disassembly (DfD) strategies to counter the future problems of construction waste created during demolition. Proper consideration of product lifespan helps to sort the components according to hierarchy and allow them to be considered for processes other than recycling such as reprocessing, reuse and relocation during demolition. DfD principles are used with theory of mass customization in the design to create a greener prototype housing which also suits the needs of the changing society. The site chosen is near to the Singapore’s city center, separated by the Kallang River. The existing housings on site, due for demolition, will be replaced by the new prototype which serves as an example to the nearby industrial areas zoned for residential use in the current Master Plan. With a need to move, the housing can be relocated at another site with different configuration yet with the same set of assembly methods.
