Design and circular economy

Event: 5 July 2019

The built environment we live in today continues to be designed around the linear “take-make-dispose” model, in which materials are supplied, used and then disposed of as waste. This approach produces significant structural waste and has contributed to making the built environment one of the world’s largest consumers of resources and raw materials, as well as a major producer of waste and CO2.

At Politecnica, we believe that adopting the principles of the circular economy in a high-growth, high-waste sector such as construction represents a huge opportunity for businesses, governments and cities. Our values of sustainable design are at the heart of every service we provide starting with the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) analysis, supported by BIM technology, which we carry out on processes related to our projects.
