Can we Design our Cities and the Built Environment for Disassembly?
27 APRIL 13.30-14.30 | POLICY ROUNDTABLE
The construction industry is the world’s largest consumer of raw materials. Most of that material will only ever be used for one building.
The construction industry is the world’s single largest consumer of raw materials, energy and water. And most of that material will only ever be used once and for only one building. The remnants of most old and not so old buildings end up under our roads or in landfill, but some cities are starting to design their buildings to be easily disassembled and repurposed from the start. The city itself needs to support a circular building and a circular way of life. So how do we design our cities to support a circular life and the buildings in a way so that they can be dismantled, and the material used again and again to create circularity and limit the use of new material? What is needed to scale the design Learn more about this challenge when leading players discuss circularity, re-use, and recycling in the construction industry
