The choice of materials for a project requires considerations of aesthetic appeal and initial and ongoing costs, life cycle assessment considerations (such as material performance, availability and impact on the environment) and the ability to reuse, recycle or dispose of the material at the end of its life.

Materials must be used sustainably – this means the present use will not compromise future use by running out or harming the environment at any time. Few materials fully meet this criteria. The aim when selecting materials should therefore be to use:

  • Materials from renewable or replaceable sources
  • Recycled materials
  • Materials that are in plentiful supply

Life cycle assessment considerations include:

  • Extraction and manufacture
  • Sourcing
  • Construction/installation
  • Performance
  • Waste disposal/recycling/reuse
