IN REGENERATIVE CITIES
How can we identify buildings for life-cycle extension?
As part of the extending lifecycles workstream, CIRCuIT partners in Copenhagen, London, Hamburg and Vantaa (Helsinki region) undertook a research exercise to identify buildings at risk of demolition in each city and assess their potential to adapt and transform.
Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is a collaborative project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London.
The project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities.
Reduce carbon emissions and increase regenerative capacity in the four cities
Reduce yearly consumption of virgin materials by 20% in new built environments
Demonstrate cost savings of 15%
