ADLib Glossary (Q to R)


Re-used for construction in their existing state (waste material)

This generally refers items specifically salvaged from a demolition of a building etc. For example slate roofing tiles removed and stored to be sold on for restoration of another roof. Other examples are Edwardian tiles, Victorian iron railings or bricks that are kept whole and can be used for restoration. In other cases it may mean that some materials are left over from a previous project but can be used, as they are on the next project e.g. motorway barriers.
