futuREuse directory

A focused edit of the Salvo directory, which has been running for thirty years, the futuREuse directory is a comprehensive listing of reclamation yards and go-to salvage-friendly specialists across the UK & Ireland.

Part of the FCRBE project, the new directory was designed to encourage more reuse of reclaimed materials in construction and renovation projects. A growing tool for architects, specifiers, procurers, builders and DIYers, it is particularly useful for restoration projects and takes the secret out of hidden salvage treasure, with easily searchable reclaimed bricks, roof tiles and slates, and flooring. 

In 2019 the Salvo team began the methodical research of hundreds of SMEs located across the UK & Ireland to compile the ultimate listing, with the team visiting 100 companies in total to gain firsthand knowledge of the expertise and materials on offer. A celebration of the vast and diverse salvage scene, the futuREuse directory champions an industry that still remains an underutilised resource - despite the environmental benefits it offers in terms of saving embodied carbon and reducing building waste.

Although the directory focuses on reclaimed building materials, it also includes architectural salvage and functional items such as refurbished cast iron radiators, lighting and sanitaryware. You will also find some decorative antiques that in some cases may no longer form a function due to modern day regulations, but can still offer great value through their character and history.

The directory is freely accessible for everyone from curious customers to professionals working across the built environment. Head to futuREuse directory on SalvoWEB where you can simply search listings by location, speciality or by the item you are seeking, from antique fireplaces to reclaimed oak flooring and modern salvage.

Browsing the UK and Ireland’s major reclamation yards will undoubtedly spark the urge to get out and visit, but the futuREuse directory has never made it easier to navigate the world of salvage.
