Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT)
Organisations from across London, Copenhagen, Hamburg and the Helsinki Region have partnered in a four-year (2019-2023) collaborative project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme called CIRCuIT - Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities: https://www.circuit-project.eu/
The project aims are to:
- Increase the regenerative capacity of cities
- Reduce the yearly consumption of virgin raw material by 20% in new builds
- Show cost savings of 15%
- Urban mining and reverse cycles (the re-use and recycling of materials);
- Extending building life through transformation and refurbishment; and
- Designing for disassembly and flexible construction (to make the other two interventions easier in the future).
- Bridge the gap between implementation of individual pilots and realisation of actual circular and regenerative cities – so scaling up to show how circular building practice can transform cities and regions at scale
- Demonstrate the application of current and future developed tools and instruments for circular built environment – so converting cutting edge theory into practice
- Developing recommendations, tools and resources including public procurement criteria and roadmaps
- Establishing a Circularity Hub – a suite of data platforms including a data atlas, dashboard, citizen engagement portal, materials exchange platform and wiki
- Setting up a knowledge sharing structure which will include training focused at municipalities and establishing networks across Europe.

 About CIRCuIT
The Circular Economy wiki is supported by the Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) project, which is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. CIRCuIT is a collaborative project involving 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London. Through a series of demonstrations, case studies, events and dissemination activities, the project will showcase how circular construction practices can be scaled and replicated across Europe to enable sustainable building in cities and the transition to a circular economy on a wider scale.
