This research aims to examine Designing for Deconstruction (DfD)in the context of Passivhaus construction, to highlight potential conflicts in achieving the 'half waste to landfill' and '80% reduction in building energy consumptions by 2050' targets that have been set by the UK government. The study will aim to find solutions to this by identifying environmental impacts of waste materials in landfill, researching existing materials reuse trends, examining DfD principles and strategies and the Passivhaus standard criteria. The Denby Dale house will be used as a case study to identify conflicts between DfD and Passivhaus. An attempt will be made to make conflicting Passivhaus construction details 'DfD friendly'. Any aspects of the construction that cannot be changed without compromising the achievement of the Passivhaus standard will be identified. The carbon footprint of the materials that cannot be reused completely will be analyssed and alternate, less carbon intensive, materials will be proposed.
