How Madaster can be of benefit to you
When an object is registered in Madaster, irrespective of whether it is an office or residential building, bridge, apartment or wind turbine, all the materials and components of the object will be accurately documented. They are united in one system, where you and your team can easily see the status of those materials, components and products. Are any of them near the end of their useful life? Could they be repaired by just replacing a certain part, or can they be reused elsewhere? You can use Madaster to show your client, contractor or manager which choices you have made to save costs or increase quality. For example, after replacing a certain element, you can easily determine whether an installation could be reused. This is the responsible way of handling the materials that you have at your disposal.
How it works
Insight into materials and products
As a fitter or contractor, you know better than anyone else what constitutes quality and what does not.
You make professional choices and know how and when things have to be replaced and what work this entails. It is good to know, in advance, what materials and components are included in all the products you use, as well as the extent to which they could be dismantled and what would be their average lifespan. This makes it easier to predict when they will need to be maintained or replaced and what their residual value will be. Using Madaster will make it easier to plan and organise your work.
Clarity for all parties involved
Discussions can sometimes arise about the need for and timing of maintenance, repair or replacement work and how this could best be carried out.
Madaster does away with the need for such discussions, as it offers an objective insight into the lifespan, disassembly possibilities and circularity of every product and component installed in a registered building.
Less waste, fewer losses
The lifespan of products, and even of the individual components within them, may vary. Detailed registration prevents still-useful materials from being discarded.
This greatly increases the sustainability of any installation and its maintenance, while also making it less expensive. Madaster also shows the possible residual value of all registered products and components. This means that, when they do need replacing, they will still be worth something. As an innovative fitter, you want to be able to offer this to your clients, as it would benefit them, both now and in the long term.

The Madaster Platform
In Madaster, material passports can be created, effortlessly, based on a BIM (IFC) or Excel document. By automatically enhancing them with information on circularity, environmental impact and residual value, your Madaster environment will become a valuable data source.
The overview of registered objects, enriched with insight from algorithms, is available through our area register. It visualises availability of materials on a user defined area level. It provides insight for policymakers and anyone looking for data on the built environment.
