Definition of a new method for the analysis of Building circularity

Solution 1 is focused on the development of an innovative methodology for the quantification of building circularity considering current management and use of water, waste, energy and material resources in all stages of housing value chain.

Stakeholders in housing sector (such as businesses and dwellers) have little knowledge about the potential benefits of circular economy and tend to be reluctant to adopt new circular business models. In HOUSEFUL, a new methodology will be created to calculate the Circularity Level of a residential building to create awareness in  the housing value chain about negative impacts caused by the use of traditional linear business models. This solution will be offered to stakeholders as a web-based tool for the evaluation of European buildings’ circularity.
