CIRCuIT (Circular Construction In Regenerative Cities) is an international project focusing on circular construction. The project receives funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

Objectives of the project

CIRCuIT project is focusing on developing circular construction under three themes:

  • Dismantling of buildings, reuse of construction components and recycling of construction materials
  • Extending lifecycles of buildings by refurbishment and transforming the use purpose of buildings
  • Flexible construction: versatility, modifiability and plans that enable dismantling

In addition, the project develops models of procedures which help the cities to increase the circular construction solutions in built environment. “Circularity hub” is a knowledge platform created for the cities to support the use of circular economy solutions in construction. CIRCuIT Academy network is created to share the knowledge.
