Keeping resources in use for as long as possible is at the core of circular economy thinking, and there are a growing number of developments benefiting from the inherent durability of concrete frames through their reuse, saving embodied carbon in the process.
This webinar showcases projects illustrating ways in which concrete elements can be reused in their entirety, presented by members of the manufacturing and design teams.
Presentations within the webinar include:
Introduction and welcome - Jenny Burridge, Director, Structural Design, The Concrete Centre
