Tiivistelmä

Obsolescence of buildings is a complex phenomenon. Previous research has found that demolition of buildings is primarily determined by behavioural aspects, amongst which is the use of the building. At the same time, service life design of buildings keeps focusing strongly on physical factors, such as the durability of materials. This study intends to shed light on the relationship of the building’s function and material by investigating demolition rates of Finnish buildings that are made of different materials (timber, concrete, bricks, steel) and that have different functions (10 categories, both residential and non-residential). The study uses demolition data from the Finnish Building and Dwelling Register (50 818 buildings – all buildings demolished between 2000 and 2012) and statistical data on the composition of the entire building stock. According to the results, the building type seems to be more decisive than the material. The highest loss rates take place amongst warehouse buildings.
