Summary Conventional mechanical building demolition produces numerous solid wastes, most of which are sent to landfill directly and severely degrade the living environment. Just-in-time building demolition has been developed recently with a management strategy to facilitate waste reuse. Procurement management plays a significant role in just-in-time building demolition. In particular, the demolition tendering selection needs to consider contractors' environmental performance in addition to project costs. Moreover, the flow of building materials in a demolition project may be regarded as a supply chain involving the building owner, demolition contractor and material demanders. This paper develops a framework for salvaged materials management in the emerging demolition industry. The research is to promote the recycling and reuse of building demolition materials in order to achieve better environmental and financial performance for building demolition projects.
