Circular Economy Guide now available for pre-order – Latest
Making reuse the norm and establishing a circular economy for the construction industry is imperative for us to urgently reduce our emissions and reliance on raw materials. Structural engineers are uniquely placed to facilitate reuse but guidance, strategic decisions and a joined-up approach are needed to achieve the necessary 50% emissions reduction across our industry by 2030.
Forthcoming guidance from the IStructE, co-authored by our Director & Head of Sustainability, Penny Gowler, will provide actionable guidance for incorporating circular principles on engineering projects, enabling structural engineers to take the initiative on this critical transition by leading clients and project teams through the process.
Available for pre-order now, this guide covers four key areas:
1. The main concepts of circular economy design
2. Reusing existing buildings
3. Reusing materials, elements and assemblies
4. Designing for future circularity.
