In which it will enhanced this dissertation further into pushing one’s mind to think of the possibilities to create new and unique advanced construction materials in Singapore’s research and development area. The international studies will be based on cases within Asia, namely Malaysia as its country conditions are similar to Singapore, and beyond Asia, namely Netherlands as it is one of the country which is greatly promoting recyclability and moving towards sustainability. These studies will be critically analysed based on its planning factors, design considerations, characteristics of the recycled material, identifying the properties, and lastly commenting on its application in Singapore construction industry.
