Circular economy: strategies for concrete buildings

Recorded:Monday 13 December 2021
Presented by:Elaine Toogood, Head of Architecture, The Concrete Centre
CPD:1 hours

There is a growing recognition that we urgently need to transform our throwaway take-make-dispose economy into a circular one, in which resources are kept in use for as long as possible, extracting maximum value from them in use, then recover all materials at the end of their service life. 

This presentation considers the strategies that designers can adopt to maximise a concrete structure’s potential in a circular economy.
