Circular Economy thinking in construction is now the theme of a number of construction projects, manufacturing initiatives, research projects, standards developments, books, workshops and conferences. Come and listen to the latest activities and thinking going on in all these areas related to construction, including British Glass who will represent the FISSAC project, on Friday 20 January 2016 at the Building Centre, in central London (UK).

Who should attend? Construction professionals – architects, designers, specifiers, contractors, construction product manufacturers, researchers working on projects directly involving construction.

This is a one-day networking event hosted by the UK Construction Products Association and the government/industry UK Green Construction Board, in collaboration with the Knowledge Transfer Network and BRE. There will be presentations from policy makers from the European Commission, contractors trying to build with circularity in mind, development projects that are trying to include circular thinking in their proposals, industry standards groups refining the measurement of End of Life for construction products, how the digitalisation of product data for use in BIM models will help to facilitate circularity, as well as academic studies hoping to contribute to industry thinking.

The event will also provide the opportunity for a first view of the proposed Top Tips for embedding circular economy thinking into construction prepared by the Green Construction Board.

This conference is a successor to the February 2016 conference convened by the same collaborators attended by over 100 people which explored the application of circular economy thinking to construction and the built environment. A Knowledge Resource Report was produced for that event highlighting the many projects and activities going on.  Find it here. This report will be revised for a new edition before the January 2017 conference.

Please send details of any new projects, books, research papers and activities to jane.thornback@constructionproducts.org.uk
