More Use Less Waste in the Workplace: Designing for Reuse with Modular Interior Systems

The desire to achieve long-term sustainable solutions in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) industry, where waste plays a huge role in our impact, doesn't always land us where we want to be. We’ve made substantial progress in developing less toxic building products and using more renewable, carbon sequestering materials, but there has not been much progress in addressing the impact of material waste driven by cyclical workplace demolition and renovation.
