In view of the amount of grey energy embodied in buildings, CO2 reduction is an increasingly pressing issue in demolition, new construction and refurbishment. Up to now, however, consistent concepts and methods for tackling the problem have been lacking. With an eye on achieving highly climate neutral construction processes by 2030, Swedish architectural consultancy White Arkitekter have been developing a data driven solution since 2020. ReCapture allows all the components of an existing building to be mapped and identified. The architects first perform a 360° laser scan of the building to be demolished or transformed.
