IN REGENERATIVE CITIES
CIRCuIT hackathons find transformation ideas for obsolete buildings in the Helsinki region
CIRCuIT Helsinki region partners brought stakeholders together through a series of hackathons to find alternative uses and transformation ideas for three obsolete buildings in Helsinki and the city of Vantaa.
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%
