The Circular Approach to Building Buildings

11 May 2021
1:00pm - 2:15pm EDT

Registration for this event has passed

The three little pigs nursery rhyme suggests that a more sustainable approach to (house) building means using stronger and more resilient materials, so when the wolf comes he can’t “huff and puff and blow the house down”. The circular economy suggests that if and when the wolf is successful or when a building has reached the end of its life that its component parts can be recovered and re-used.

This webinar will detail how the Netherlands move towards a circular economy and building construction go hand-in-hand. A key aspect of this process is the registration and documentation of products and materials so that these can be recovered and reused in future projects.

But just as we cannot build a house by ourselves, in a circular system we need many partners to join in the effort to minimize if not eliminate waste and use materials with low(er) environmental impacts. Thus, this webinar will also demonstrate the various roles the government, industry and the general public play in this more sustainable approach to construction.

Our speakers will delve into the basements and climb into the attics to find the common ground as well as differences in both Dutch and Canadian circular construction approaches and best practices.


Please feel free to forward this invite to any of your colleagues who might be interested.
