This paper outlines the problems and offers innovative solutions that embrace technological innovations, advances in manufacturing and distribution, and integration of building and land use concepts through:1) application of a dismountable and reconfigurable structural system, 2) promotion of the concept of kitting, and 3) reconceptualization of the relationships between construction management, engineering, supply chain configurations, environmental modeling, design, and urban planning. Basic components are described with the modeling and research agenda needed to make these solutions both viable and adoptable.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE)||Series/Report no.:||Critical Infrastructure Group||Copyright (published version):||American Society of Civil Engineers 2004||Keywords:||Sustainability; Reuse; Reconfigurable structures; Solid waste||Subject LCSH:||Sustainable construction
