Practical Guide

Practical guide: content

This guide offers you practical information and tools around circular building.

The guide is organised into 3 practical questions that come up in every construction project. For each question, the guide gives you the information you need to get started in practice. Also, the link to the ‘Circular Built’ tool is provided, as well as other practical tools where applicable.

Putting my project on the market and choosing partners: how do I get started? 

 The transition to a circular economy means we have to rethink the ambitions and delivery of construction projects. The purchasing and tendering process plays an important role here. It ensures that a different approach is needed to be able to successfully complete a building or renovation. To provide guidance to the sector, a framework was developed that allows you to map all the considerations and phases that are important when tendering a circular and bio-based construction project.

Which aspects of circulair construction do I include in my project and how do I follow up on them? 

Circular construction is a very broad and complex topic. It is therefore not always easy to define concrete ambitions for a project. Do you focus on reusing building materials? Or do you rather focus on demountable construction so that the building carries a high future circular potential? This guide and the accompanying tool provide support in concretising circular ambitions by giving an overview of the key elements and actions you can include in a project.

How can I evaluatie my project after devlivery?

In order to evaluate a project properly, it is crucial that you focus on a number of issues from the beginning of the project. That way, you have a clear view of all aspects of your project from the outset and can gain important insights on how to improve things. There are various methods and tools to do this.
