"This paper introduces a PhD project which aims to propose a multidisciplinary evaluation method for demountable buildings that addresses the issues of environment, social responsibility and economic effects. Public use demountable buildings fulfil many temporary needs, such as non-emergency transitional schools, ephemeral exhibitions and seasonal
entertainment. They differ from static buildings in various ways, mainly due to the users’ needs for adaptability, mobility and flexibility. The hypothesis is that the existing evaluation methods from related areas can be adapted and applied to small-scale public demountable buildings. A specific evaluation method that applies to public demountable buildings can then potentially be adapted to other types and scales in future research."
