‘reco’ is a project by cilicon faytory / national university of singapore

with an estimated 1.0 to 1.2 million tones of demolition waste produced annually and with the increased en-bloc activities, there is great potential in tapping on these recycled aggregates for non-structural application. the national university of singapore has successfully recycled aggregate/concrete into various applications. these recycled aggregates are obtained from the concrete from the construction, renovation and demolition of old building. this is another step towards creating a sustainable and environmental friendly built environment in singapore. the project is supported by BCA (building and construction authority) who has been promoting sustainable construction methods, which include the use of materials that can be readily recycled and reused for same or similar purpose. the technique created by associate professor wee tiong huan and his team from the university’s department of civil engineering results in a homogeneously well-compacted mass for increased strength and robustness while further reducing the weight. the recycled concrete furniture was designed by cilicon faytory and produced by compac green singapore pte ltd.
