Abstract: A greater emphasis on sustainability and increased ground congestion in urban areas has made foundation reuse increasingly important. While several decision-making aids and assessment tools have been developed, none have been independently assessed. The aim of this project is to analyse three prominent assessment tools through their application to five cases. Through the comparison and analysis of the five case studies and the applied assessment methods, benefits and difficulties associated with their usage became apparent. Observations were made and which led to recommendations on how these difficulties could be overcome.
