Focus areas

To showcase how the built environment can become circular, CIRCuIT’s focus areas span the entire construction process.

Of the seven focus areas, each city will be responsible for three demonstrations in the following three focus areas: ‘urban mining – recycling and reuse of built environment materials’, ‘extending lifecycles’ and ‘design for disassembly and flexible construction’. The demonstrations will be carried out in collaboration with project partners.

By demonstrating three innovative solutions in four cities, we will obtain valuable information on opportunities and challenges as regards building practices, costs, governance and regulatory frameworks. We will identify the existing implementation gaps and how to overcome them.
