CALL TO ACTION

Circular Economy in the Building Industry From Pilot to Mainstream

 

During the last decade, the building industry has established a solid knowledge base within circular construction - both when it comes to design, materials, and documentation.


However, these achievements have largely been achieved through pilot projects. So how does the building industry organize itself in order to ensure a circular transition from pilot to mainstream projects and which sustainable business models need to be developed?

WHAT

BLOXHUB invites you to a half-day workshop to take a deep dive into this discussion. At the workshop, we will develop a roadmap, which identifies opportunities, barriers, and supporting business model elements.

 

During the workshop we will work with the following two dilemmas:

 

1.

The market is responding to circular economy through an increasing demand for circular economy profiled projects. However, ensuring a reliable supply of circular materials to meet the demand, is a challenge. How is this barrier addressed in order to ensure that it does not discourage developers’ movement from a linear to a circular business model? 

2.

Innovation is key for the future circular market. The circular innovation has to a large extend been driven by start-ups and smaller agile companies. There is a risk that the large companies are the only ones able to respond to an increasing circular demand. There is also a risk that larger companies will do this based on business models, which loses out on the innovation capacity that exists in the smaller companies. How can we create a circular market, where the SME’s innovation capacity is integrated into a market led by larger companies?
