The project, BUILD-CIRCULAR UP, is a tool which will lead to the transition to circular economy in the European construction sector, resulting in the increase of resource efficiency to push towards green, resilient cites while boosting local regional economies.
During the past year, we studied the construction and demolition sector in Malta to understand better how this sector perceives the circular economy. Together with our partners, Clean Tech Bulgaria and Cyprus University of Technology we created a self-assessment tool that can be used by the various professional and technical persons within the construction sector. Furthermore, we conducted a series of Focus Group sessions with various representatives from this sector, to test the tool. The tool was aslo presented to the Buildings Industry Consultative Committee and also presented at the SBE conference in November 2019.
Our Partners in this project are: Clean Tech Bulgaria and Cyprus University of Technology
