State of the art on material flow data in the built environment summary report

Authors: Kaie Small Warner, Ben Cartwright, Tom Jennings, Gilli Hobbs (BRE)

A consistent and comprehensive approach to data collection, analysis and management

enables more systematic and evidence based policy interventions and business models. To

support increased circularity in the built environment it is therefore necessary to understand

the availability, quality and granularity of existing built environment data.

This report summarizes one of CIRCuIT’s tasks that identified and assessed datasets with

information on building and infrastructure material stocks and flows in London,

Copenhagen, Hamburg and Helsinki region.

The scope, approach and overall assessment of identified datasets are first presented.

This is followed by the current status and potential approaches for city level data in the

partner cities along with some dataset highlights. Innovative tools and methodologies for

data collection are then discussed followed by overall conclusions.

The technical report was completed in March 2020 and is awaiting approval from the EU.
