As circularity is included in increasingly more projects, the contractor will also be confronted with additional circularity requirements at some point. When circular ambitions in a project are made concrete using this tool, it makes it easier for the contractor to assess and correctly budget for the additional requirements in the construction process.
As part of circular construction, an "open" query approach is chosen more frequently, where cooperation at an early stage is encouraged. It is then up to the contractor to come up with solutions and demonstrate their circularity. Using the tool, the contractor, together with the other project partners, can illustrate circularity and thus distinguish itself from its competitors. Moreover, the tool also provides concrete guidance on how to realise certain circular ambitions. For instance, it can illustrate to what extent the chosen building systems and connection methods enable reuse and recycling in the future. Or which concrete measures are needed to maximise reuse in an existing situation. In addition, the tool illustrates what the contractor can do about waste management during the construction phase, the maintenance of the building afterwards, documentation management or innovative business models.
