The mission of the project is creating the first ever digital platform and forecasting tool for the construction industry worldwide. At the end of the project, this platform will be available only for Denmark and ready to scale in Europe. Via an API access to the open-source, Danish governmental database, we will extract building data and demolishing data from the municipality registers, convert the data into effective forecasting tools and supply the industry by the use of our platform. Through the platform it is possible to see what will be demolished, where, when and what materials you could reuse from that demolition site in particular. The users/customers can get in touch with the demolishers and the platform works as a first contacting point where they can discuss the trade of materials. Looking at the big picture, this will lead to: 1: Increased re-use of materials and less need for creating new materials. Lower CO2 Emissions. 2: Increased availability for the materials. Easier for the property developers to comply with the EU regulations of 70% re-use of materials. 3: Reduced amount of waste to depos. 4: Could lead to better prices for reusables for both demolishers and developers as the market becomes more open.
