IN REGENERATIVE CITIES

PUBLICATION

CIRCuIT research published in Sustainable Cities and Society

The study “Using digitized public accessible building data to assess the renovation potential of existing building stock in a sustainable urban perspective” investigates the possibilities of using information from public registers and databases on existing buildings as possible input data to inform designers and other stakeholders about the renovation potential of existing buildings in urban developments. 

 

ABOUT CIRCUIT

The image is an illustrated graphic of a city, with mint, grey and teal buildings. The road is filled in a golden yellow, with trees on either side of the road.

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.
