While this route can be rewarding when it yields needed items, it cannot be planned in advance and proved not to be a useful source for the vicarage. Demolition sites and contractors ● ● ● Salvage yards prices (for storage). Dealers should be chosen according to items being sought. For the vicarage three suitable local yards were identified that stocked items such as cast-iron radiators, kitchen fixtures, doors, flooring, bricks, roofing slates, steel and timber. The yards also contained materials of little relevance to the vicarage including garden ornaments and window frames that would not comply with the current UK building regulations.

What barriers are there to reusing the materials or components in terms of conformance to regulations and standards? How can the barriers be overcome? What tests are available for certifying materials and components? What contamination risks are associated with each material? Are there future durability issues? How can the life expectancy of the materials or components be assessed? What are the possible uses for various reclaimed materials? What are the sources for the materials and components?

The structural engineer got involved and, as he worked closely with the grader, over 90 per cent of the salvaged timber was passed as suitable for structural use. Initial resistance from the local building regulatory authority also had to be overcome. The timber had to be purchased early in the design stage to ensure its availability to the contractor when required, and the initial design had to be revised to accommodate the precise dimensions of the timber pieces purchased. Structural steel for timber connections, concrete reinforcing, steel decks and seismic bracing had a recycled content of at least 75 per cent and no significant problems were encountered during its use.
