Note that based on this discussion, we have now created a new demolition template specifically for fit-outs to account for the end-of-life deconstruction impacts (module C1) of the new fit-out project. Please use the ‘Demolition – Fitout (End-of-Life)‘ template for fit-out only assessments.

For fit-out only assessments, if there is any removal of existing finishes to facilitate the completion of the new fit-out, please use the two templates – ‘Floor Covering – Existing Carpet For Removal’ and ‘Ceiling Lining – Existing Plasterboard for Removal’ templates to account for the once-off material disposal impacts of existing carpet or plasterboard that will be removed.

For whole building assessments, please consider the Warm Shell Fit-out Material Waste Impacts, BAU Average (m2) or Warm Shell Fit-out Material Waste Impacts, Office Building, 35% replaced (m2) templates to account for ‘warm shell’ assumptions in the Reference/BAU building. For details of the assumptions used for these templates, please refer to the template description. The fit-out end-of-life demolition template won’t be necessary for a whole building assessment since the overall building demolition template would already account for this.
